Stage Venture Partners is a seed venture capital fund that invests in emerging technology for B2B markets.

Founded in 2015 by two entrepreneurial partners, Stage is designed to deliver active and thoughtful investment. One of us is a successful international operator who has built global businesses. The other an experienced angel investor and venture capitalist with a strong track record.

Stage invests in Founders building frontier technology for enterprise clients. We offer access, services, and expertise that are unique in our market, leading to remarkable results for our portfolio.

We are not thesis, geographic or sector focused, but instead business model focused. We invest only in software companies that solve problems for companies, monetizing either through SAAS or transaction fees.
