Aurelia Ventures is an ultra-early operator VC that provides knowledge, skills, network, operational capabilities, and investment to outlier B2B SaaS founders. Our goal is to help you to scale from POC/Stealth to Seed.
We support founding teams across two consecutive stages.
Stage #1: Founder teams usually get in touch with us at the inception (POC/Stealth/Pre-Seed) stage and receive from us knowledge, skills, perks & benefits, community, and extended network to scale their company. In exchange, we receive a small amount of equity (usually what you would give to two advisors at your stage) and the option to participate in your next investment round.
Stage #2: When you decide to raise external capital, we have the capital to invest in your first institutional round to fuel their growth further and provide you with continuous support based on your stage. We usually guide our founders up to a Seed round and support them with the respective growth challenges during that time.
You are building a B2B software product or service and haven’t raised more than Seed round.
We are very mindful of your time and we've created an environment where founders can be the most productive without us adding to their to-do lists. For your first month, we recommend attending the onboarding sessions and getting to know the community. Overall, how much time you invest in our program is mainly up to you.
We are seeking a certain founder profile that can leverage our operational resources and program to its full extent. From 120+ applications per month, we accept a maximum of 2 startups into the program every month. Often we decide to work with only one startup and sometimes none.
1. Application: Please submit your application. We will review your application within 24 hours during business days.
2. Interview: In the following days, after our initial review, we will invite selected startups for an interview. We want to get to know your company and the founding team better. We also wish to give you the opportunity to get to know the Aurelia Ventures team and ask any questions you may have.
3. Review: Our venture committee will make the final decision within shortly after your interview. We notify startups of their acceptance to the program in the days after the interview. If we don’t see a perfect fit, we will provide detailed feedback about our decision.
4. Kick-off: Once admitted to the program, you will have immediate access to all our resources such as the Aurelia Ventures team, our mentors, webinars, community, and perks & benefits.
You will book a kick-off call with us at your earliest convenience to discuss more in-depth how Aurelia Ventures will support you in your journey.
Currently, we require the team and company to be based in the US.
We support our founders until they have raised a Seed round or have (roughly) 20 people in the company.
The founders have lifelong access to leverage our network and resources. When we commit to you, we commit fully. We want you to win!
Often, we see founder teams joining us again with their follow-on company after their exit.
Please email us and let us know what you would like to offer to our portfolio companies.
If you have any additional questions, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
About Aurelia Ventures
Built by experienced founders for experienced founders. We know the feeling when you attended an accelerator session and feel that this was a waste of time and that you could have invested your time better in your company. Access to the right experience and people at the right time is indispensable.
Aurelia Ventures redefines how an operator VC supports early-stage founders at their earliest stage. We intentionally, unconventionally, back founders earlier than any other Angel or investor (often at the idea stage) to help them navigate the growth challenges they will face early on.
We guide you through the challenges B2B SaaS early-stage founders face, prepare you to raise from Angels and VCs, help you to acquire customers, and to hire our first people. Leverage our network of experienced operators and extend your runway with $1.25M+ in perks and benefits.
We know nothing trumps the right experience and access to the right people at the right time.
