Our team does not stay limited to those who co-founded this Company. MidStage Ventures intends to grow business finding the best match between started companies (midstage) and investors, and to do so we don’t believe we have to adore people, but ideas and businesses. We have the perfect people in different sectors to combine the interests that matters: doing deals.

Storytellers by Experience (Mentors)

“Mentors are, by experience, storytellers. They share their knowledge after experiencing the most difficult business obstacles, and there they are to shorten our Startups path in to success”. We hand-pick mentors for a meaningful relationship with our Startups. It must have a real need, otherwise it would be just another huge picture mural, but no recognition and identification to any startup dream.”
