Philosophy

The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing.

TIA Ventures is a Seed-to-Series A fund that invests in extraordinary companies led by high-execution teams. Our diligence-driven investment strategy centers on stress-testing management and leveraging in-depth customer research to make better investment decisions — strong leadership and delighting customers are the two primary success-drivers for early stage companies. The entrepreneurs we partner with are dedicated to creating powerful, customer-relevant solutions to problems worth solving.
