SnowPoint Ventures is rediscovering the roots of US Venture Capital when in 1946 the US Government began to encourage private sector investments in businesses run by soldiers returning from war. Our goal is to bring this ideal into the 21st century through rapid investment into the private market ecosystem by identifying companies that have a technology or product that, we believe, could be leveraged for the greater good. Our mission is to blur the lines between venture capital and private equity — providing primary capital to these potential portfolio companies in order to focus on this new initiative while helping them bid on and win government contracts.
Currently, the greatest threat to our national security is the growing misalignment between the government and emerging technology companies. Our goal is to close this gap through a combination of primary investments and operational expertise strategically supporting them at all stages of growth from ideation to IPO. SnowPoint Ventures Fund I is specifically designed to make venture capital investments in equity or equity-equivalent securities. The focus of Fund I is centered around US Government Anticipated Technologies that will provide national security and societal resilience while defining the global defense landscape over the next century.
We are proven GovTech Operators and are focused on helping the next generation of US-based companies navigate the unique challenges and risks of creating disruptive technologies for both commercial and government use. Over the past 15 years, private companies focused on military and government technologies have outperformed the Nasdaq Top 100, proving that more investment is needed in such a poorly neglected space. This is how we, at SnowPoint Ventures, continue to serve our great nation and continue to protect the generations of Americans to come.
