about us

Wyvern Ventures is a multi-stage venture capital fund manager.

We make Seed, Series A & later-stage investments in technology and Internet startups that may be located anywhere in the world but are targeting a global audience. We particular focus on startups located in Australia, South East Asia, Hong Kong, China, the United Kingdom and the United States. We have vast experience in helping grow highly-successful global consumer-focused Internet & software companies and aim to help you grow your business and not just provide capital. Being founders ourselves we know the best use of an entrepreneurs’ bandwidth is focusing on developing ideas, building products, and running & growing their businesses, not dealing with investor overhead.

what we look for

Great Ideas

It sounds obvious but finding truly great ideas that are commercially viable to massive audience take a lot of time. Therefore, we say ‘no’ a lot more than we say ‘yes’.

Great People

Even more important than a great idea, is finding great people to develop that idea into an operational business. That doesn’t mean having all the skills today, just the right attitude & motivation to learn along the way.

Market Potential

Knowing your target and having a large total addressable market, along with a multiple potential routes to generate long-term revenue and income is critical for a successful business.

Ready to Go

We’re looking for more than ideas on paper, we typically work with companies that have at least working prototypes. That means at least a minimal viable product (MVP), beta or production product.

how much do we invest?

Investments vary on the stage of the business and, of course, the market potential of the individual company. We look at both early-stage “seed” investments, and later-stage “growth” investments. Usually we like to take minority positions without too many bells and whistles. We want to keep the entrepreneurs and founders motivated with enough equity upside that everyone prospers with the success of the company.

how do we invest?

Most of the companies we ultimately invest in have been initially introduced to us through our network of colleagues, portfolio companies, or wider group of contacts. If you think your company may be a good fit for Wyvern we’d love to hear from you and recommend a warm introduction as the best way to reach us.

If you don’t have a route to a warm introduction, then please use the contact form. We do review all the cold contacts we receive through the website however due to the quantity of pitches we see we apologize that we may be unable to reply to each one.
