    Founded in 2015, Wildcat Venture Partners invests in early stage companies leveraging key technologies such as: artificial intelligence (AI), augmented reality (AR)/virtual reality (VR), highly scalable data infrastructure, machine learning (ML), and the internet of things (IoT). The firm is specifically interested in companies that are applying these technologies in the following markets: consumer, digital health, edtech, enterprise, fintech, marketing technology, and marketplaces. Wildcat Venture Partners has developed a framework called the Traction Gap, to better equip entrepreneurs in the critical go-to-market phase. The Traction Gap spans from a startup's Initial Product Release (IPR) to Minimum Viable Traction (MVT), which is defined as a point in a company's maturity -- whether it be a certain level of revenue growth, engagement, downloads, usage or other variables -- that demonstrates market validation and signals positive growth trajectory.
