Why We’re Different

As a private firm investing the capital of its partners, VoyLét Capital is not subject to the restrictions created by the conventions of traditional venture capital firms. VoyLét Capital is not required to make decisions based on artificial limitations, thereby allowing the firm’s portfolio companies to make strategic decisions based purely on the economic interest of the company. We are committed to creating value for our portfolio companies.

Our Investment Focus

We seek to invest in entrepreneurs building early-stage, scalable technology companies that offer unique engagement(s) for a network and create competitive advantage through user growth.

Let’s break this down:

  • Early-stage: We are looking for companies raising Seed or Series A rounds
  • Scalable technology: Being capable of accommodating a growing amount of work in a capable manner; this encompasses the ability to move and expand with the market
  • Unique engagements(s): Market disruption — offering a different interaction than what currently exists, and moving beyond the expected
  • Vast network: Large, interconnected groups or systems — such as transactions, sharing, or marketplaces
  • Competitive advantage through user growth: “Network Effects” — the value of a product or service is dependent on the number of others using it
