    Kirlan Venture Capital is a Seattle-based private venture capital firm providing equity financing and supportive business expertise to promising young companies with talented entrepreneurs who have a vision of the future. Over the years KVC has invested in early to mezzanine stage companies in the Healthcare, Life Sciences, Internet, Software, Communications, Specialty Retail, Manufacturing and other technology sectors. The firm focuses primarily on companies located in the Puget Sound area of Washington, although KVC has often invested in opportunities in other parts of the country or even abroad. KVC was founded in 1992 and is the General Partner of two private venture investment funds. Investment amounts depend on many factors, including the company's development stage, and typically range from $100,000 to $1,000,000 per round, although KVC limits the total investment in any one company to approximately $2,000,000. Although KVC has occasionally served as the lead investor, the firm prefers to co-invest with a lead venture capital firm who has expertise in the company's market segment.
