A global fintech venture capital strategy dedicated to supporting fintech innovators
About Portage Ventures
Portage Ventures is a global fintech venture capital investment strategy. Focused on seed to series C opportunities in insurance, consumer & SMB finance, wealth & asset management, and fintech enablers, our team partners with ambitious companies to help them achieve their aspirations.
As former founders and operators, we understand the entrepreneurial journey and are active investors and thought partners who roll up our sleeves in partnership with the entrepreneurs we back.
Our deep fintech expertise, relationships with the global financial services ecosystem, and in-house domain experts are testaments to our hands-on approach.
We follow a global and thesis-driven approach to fintech investing. We continuously challenge and refine our views by developing extensive theses in collaboration with our broader network of investors, advisors, and founders. We believe our deep fintech knowledge enables a focused and rigorous approach to deal origination and differentiates us in our value-add for entrepreneurs.
We strive to exemplify this founder-centric approach across Portage and in all our interactions.
