The Capital One Growth Ventures approach to investing centers on partnership. Our work is not just about providing a source of funding. It’s also about exploring relationships, seeking out new possibilities and discovering what we can do together. Over the course of two decades in financial services, Capital One has gained a deep understanding of our customers, what they are looking for, and how we can help them succeed. Armed with this expertise, we believe we can give startups an edge and help strengthen the impact of innovative technologies.
A major part of our role is helping startups evolve and define their space. We do this by:
- Pushing their thinking. We connect startups with subject matter experts – at Capital One and across the industry – who share their insights and challenge startups to see things differently.
- Giving entrepreneurs a safe space to test their ideas.
- Thinking beyond just the product itself to help startups manage all aspects of running a successful new company – both now and in the long term.
