Company Description

Open Prairie Ventures invests in high growth information technology, wireless communication and life science technology companies. They look for companies with efficient capital usage and disruptive technologies. Areas near major universities noted for research and innovation are an essential part of their focus. They seek to utilize less than $5 million of capital to generate meaningful revenue and to deploy less than $15 million of syndicated capital to develop, commercialize and exit their investments. Open Prairie Ventures prefers to be the lead investor, or co-lead investor in pre-revenue portfolio companies, and to syndicate with their venture network as post-revenue growth requires additional capital.
