Our Values

We are optimists who believe that technology and the startup ecosystem are generally progressive forces in society.

We started Mosaic Ventures to invest in inspiring, ambitious founders. We love renegades who take a fresh look at the world and want to shape it their way. The outliers.

Our business is grounded in a deeply-held set of values:


Entrepreneurs put everything into their startups. You are the foundation for what we do. We understand that venture capital would not exist without you. Period.

True Partnership

As your investor we have faith in you. We are open and straightforward. We offer intellectual honesty and unbiased counsel, at each step of your journey.


The path through the wilderness is by definition uncertain. We are in it for the long haul. This is a business that rewards patience on all levels. We love true  single-minded founders with grit.


Mosaic is a flat, equal partnership, small by design. Should you choose us, everyone at the firm becomes your partner. We will work our hearts out for you.

Independent Thinkers

We often take a different view from the herd, so love engaging with crazy, contrarian ideas and investing in them early.

Low Friction

We appreciate the value of time and the pressure you're under. We commit to simple, transparent business and quick turnarounds. We don't sweat the small stuff and deliver on our promises.
