Arena Ventures leads early stage investments in the world's best founders. Our process is focused on people first: understanding the founding team and digging into their history, skills, character, motivations and passion. We work with brilliant, hard-working and uniquely competitive founders who pursue massive visions backed up by thoughtful and bold action. We selectively back founders whose ideas are unique and timely; ideas that leverage the future shifts in culture, society, markets and technology. We also focus on revenue (yup!) - we focus on companies that produce a product or service that a consumer or business will pay for even in the earliest days. We also focus on leadership, brand building and community: the founders we back must have a unique ability to communicate, understand and inspire their customers, employees, partners and the broader world of stakeholders around them.
