Strategy Details

Whom We Back

We back the top entrepreneurs of high-growth technology companies whose solutions are unique and scalable. We look for true innovation and invest in companies that solve real problems and provide real value for their customers. We work with the leaders who are building tomorrow.

Types of Companies

Our focus is on enterprise and consumer companies that have the right fit with Aegon and Transamerica. These companies have great teams, unique products, disruptive models, large markets, and competitive moats.  Specifically, we focus on four verticals: Insurtech, Fintech, Enterprise Software, and Digital Health.

Round Size

We invest $2 million to $5 million per round, with the ability to invest more in the right situation. We participate alongside lead independent VCs, but we can co-lead or even lead in special situations. We generally do not take board seats because our philosophy is that corporate investors should not lead startups, although we always want board observer rights.

Stage of Deals

We focus on Series A, Series B, and early Series C rounds, although we are open to investing at other stages in the right situation. We generally do not do Seed deals.

Where We Invest

We invest primarily throughout the United States and Europe, but we also have investments in India and we are exploring other regions as well.

How We Work With Companies

When we invest in a company, we work to partner them with the right business unit within either the Aegon or Transamerica (or both). Although those relationships are independent of our fund and we cannot guarantee they will happen, we do everything in our power to help facilitate them and ensure they are positive and mutually beneficial.

A Note on NDAs

Like almost every VC, we do not sign NDAs at the outset of our discussions. Our commitment to entrepreneurs is to always keep their confidential information within our venture team and only share that which they allow. However, once we’re past the first few conversations and have gone into deeper diligence, we will happily sign an NDA to protect ourselves and the companies with whom we’re dealing.

We Put Entrepreneurs First

We understand entrepreneurs build businesses. We work with the thinkers and doers who are leading the charge forward and changing the future. We simply help them and guide them along the way. While we have many investments in our portfolio, we understand that founders are all in, so we keep our focus on them.

Our Entire Portfolio

Our team believes in great relationships

Great relationships between entrepreneurs and venture capitalists are built on honesty, trust, and respect. We honor these relationships through a strong commitment to our core values:


• We always respond to you

• We strive to help you create value

• We do not invest in competing companies

• We keep your sensitive information confidential and secure
