Operator.vc is an angel investing group. We help startups grow with both money and advice. We work with very early-stage companies, often just a couple of people with an idea, maybe a prototype product.
We have significant operating experience, and we are not typical investors. We build and market software products, we've done well, and we're happy to share lessons learned.
Our target audience are entrepreneurs starting software companies in the US, primarily in Boston but also in SF, NYC, and other cities.
Although technically this is financial services, we don't want the typical, staid, branding. They all use black on white or blue on white logos and branding, whereas we want a vivid color / image.
Our description to our customers on our web site is:
We're not VCs, we're operators who write checks. We've built software used by tens of millions of users. We've attracted hundreds of thousands of prospects without advertising. We've rung the bell at the NYSE to celebrate an IPO. Our operational experience includes key roles at HubSpot, CarGurus, Jana, SolidWorks, and some companies where things didn't work out. We've been there, and that's why entrepreneurs love working with us and seek us out as investors.
