WHO WE ARE

At South Central Ventures we look for inspiring, enthusiastic tech entrepreneurs and excellent teams. We partner with the most ambitious, fresh-thinking, brave and relentless ones, working on ideas shaping our future and changing the world we live in for the better. We are strong believers in diversity Ð be it ethnical, gender or any other kindÉ A number of studies indicate diversity improves performance of teams and is also reflected in the bottom line, so we want to make sure to fully use its potential Ð in our team and in our portfolio. We are focused on early stage companies originating from the SE Europe, but with global client base and international teams. While our portfolio companies are still predominantly managed by men, we proud ourselves to have supported a few female founded and lead companies. We are joining the Billion Dollar Fund for Women to give equal opportunity to them, but also encourage all brilliant women founders to use the opportunities that are out there.
