Venture capital for a new
breed of brands.

Maveron funds seed and early stage companies that empower consumers to live on their terms. We are obsessed with helping extraordinary founders build consumer companies that directly engage, evangelize and enchant customers. It’s our sole focus and abiding passion.

We often are asked where the name Maveron came from.  It’s the combination of Maverick and Vision.  How did those two things become the words we wanted to reflect in our name? Well, Samuel Augustus Maverick was a 19th-century pioneer in old Texas. After winning 300 head of cattle in a poker game, he defied prairie tradition and, out of humaneness, refused to brand his cattle. It was a bold move—and it took vision. The result: Every steer without a brand was called a “maverick” and the word entered the lexicon.  At Maveron, we prize the ability to look beyond convention. It’s branded into our name.

THE IDEA MATTERS.

EXECUTION MATTERS MORE.

THE TEAM MATTERS THE MOST.

WE INVEST IN PEOPLE OVER DEALS.

At the seed and early stage, it’s way too early to tell for certain whether a business idea will be a home run. We look for founders with advantages in technology and data, a clear understanding of their customer, and the ability to balance a big vision with close attention to detail. The people always matter, but in the early stages of a company, nothing matters more. And it’s never too early to talk to us.
