    Jarvinian Venture Fund is an early stage venture fund established in 2009 to seek opportunity in the IT Mobility industry. Sectors represented by IT Mobility are Core Infrastructure, Advanced Components, and Enabled Media. Jarvinian looks for organizations whose technologies exploit fundamental discontinuities in markets greater than $1B in size. Typical initial investments will range from $1M to $5M, with an average target cap of $20M over the life of the investment. For extraordinary opportunities, Jarvinian is willing to consider investments falling above or below this range. Jarvinian's IT Mobility Initiative seeks early stage investments in a diversity of wireless IT related sub-sectors. The firm prefers to take the lead in virtually all Seed, Startup, and Series A investments. The focus and prime interest of the Jarvinian strategy exists in these three formative stages. However, the firm will lead or partner in late stage follow-on investment rounds for its portfolio companies. Jarvinian operates primarily out of the Northeast United States, but does not place geographic restrictions on their investments.
