A hands-on, proactive, and thematic venture
Carthona Capital was founded in 2014 when a group of like minded venture investors came together to invest on a deal-by-deal basis.
In 2017, Carthona Capital shifted to a more traditional venture capital model by raising its first fund from a mix of Institutional (Superannuation), Family Office and High Net-worth investors.
At Carthona we like to invest very early - our initial investment into a business is usually at the Pre-Seed, Seed, or Series A stages.
We then like to follow-on strongly and continue to deploy larger amounts of capital as the business matures - in one instance we have supported a business by participating in seven different independent financing rounds.
We are highly thematic in the opportunities we look to invest in.
We are extremely hands-on with our portfolio companies.
Social + Environment
Carthona Capital takes its social and environmental responsibility incredibly seriously. We strive to be our very best citizen, and encourage all our stakeholders to be equally minded.
Carthona is a signatory to the United Nations supported Principles for Responsible Investment.
