    A venture division of Northwestern Mutual, Cream City Venture Capital is dedicated to investing solely in startups based in southeast Wisconsin. Beyond capital, Cream City Venture Capital portfolio companies get access to a network of mentors and state-of-the-art co-working space. Cream City VC looks to partner with companies that are leveraging technology to address problems in large markets. The firm participates in investments at the seed or Series A stage. Initial investment amounts will be in the $100,000 to $250,000 range, but we are more focused on partnering with the right founding teams and may consider smaller or larger investments.
