OUR MISSION

Founded in 1999, Windspeed Ventures has been actively working with and investing in companies that are market leaders. The areas of investment are outlined below. The team continues to search for companies that are disrupting their markets.

Windspeed Ventures portfolio consists of mainly early stage equity investments made through our three funds.  The companies represent investments in the telecommunications infrastructure, software, media, and internet services industries.

 
Steve and the Windspeed team were instrumental in the early stages of VistaPrint. They recognized the potential of our technology as a force to change the dynamics of the short run, full color printing and graphics design market and helped significantly to build our business to address the opportunity.
— Robert Keane, Chief Executive Officer of Cimpress Limited F/K/A VistaPrint Limited
 

In early 2004 Windspeed assumed management responsibility for the Comdisco Ventures Portfolio.  This portfolio was one of the largest portfolios in the United States and consisted of equity and warrant positions in over 250 companies. These were minority positions with no board seats. The companies represented all phases of growth.  The major industries represented Software and Services, Communications, Healthcare and Life Sciences.

Windspeed Partners is currently investing in early stage software companies.  The combination of a strong management team, technical differentiation in a growth market opportunity and flexibility are key metrics for investment.
