BOLD FOUNDERS WITH DISRUPTIVE IDEAS
Innovations in artificial intelligence, automation, robotics, internet-of-things, and embedded systems have the potential to revolutionize a broad set of industries including automotive, aerospace, industrial manufacturing, construction, logistics, consumer electronics, and healthcare. We are looking for founders challenging the status quo in these massive markets.
Catapult Ventures was founded by Darren Liccardo and Rouz Jazayeri. Together they have over three decades of operational experience. They approach investing from the perspective of having been in the trenches, and with an appreciation for the practical aspects of building technology in a revenue generating business.More about us
We invest in pre-seed and seed-stage startups at the intersection of hardware, embedded systems, and software. We believe that leveraging the synergies between these domains can enable innovations that otherwise would not be possible. We look for founders who create a competitive advantage with interdisciplinary thinking.
We often lead, but also syndicate with other like-minded investors. We reserve significant capital for subsequent funding rounds, and we have strong relationships with later-stage investors to help catalyze future funding rounds.Read our perspectives
