    Based in Silicon Valley, Startup Capital focuses on early-stage, capital efficient companies that require relatively small amounts of capital to achieve success. Since 2005, SCV has invested in companies across two funds focusing on FinTech, Cloud/SaaS, Security, Healthcare IT, and IoT. While most venture firms have grown too large to invest as little as $250,000 to $1 million in a financing round, Startup Capital Ventures targets investments in this range. Although the firm's primary geographic focus is investments in the United States, Startup will invest opportunistically in Asia, primarily in China, through its offices in Hong Kong and Shenzhen. In the U.S., Startup's focus is principally Silicon Valley as well as Hawaii, Texas, and Oklahoma, where the firm has extensive relationships through its limited partner base.
