We rethink venture and provide entrepreneurs with an unfair advantage to accelerate success while helping enterprises digitally transform.
Capital is the cost of entry for an entrepreneur, but it isn’t a magic solution.
Building technology companies to real market success is an exciting, but volatile process. Too often, entrepreneurs face limited reach to end customers and lack access to deep research capabilities and specialized talent. These are challenges that capital alone can’t solve. Team8’s model was built around the belief that we could improve the odds for entrepreneurs but also develop the right solutions for enterprises.
We are more than investors. We are company builders invested in your success.
We believe in domain expertise and are specialists in cybersecurity, data and fintech. We are former CEOs, serial entrepreneurs and investors, as well as former intelligence leaders, researchers, technologists, ideators and marketers. We’ve created a culture and model that is open, collaborative, multidisciplinary and creative. One that leverages our diverse perspectives and our strategic focus on specific domain expertise.
Our model identifies and solves enterprise problems through a disciplined de-risking process.
We partner with entrepreneurs to co-found new companies through our foundry vehicles or invest in entrepreneurs already on their way through our investment arm. Leveraging our Village of industry, government and academic leaders, our model enables us to surface enterprise challenges, ideate solutions, and build or invest in companies to drive enterprise innovation and accelerate growth.
We are domain experts. We build and invest in areas we really get.
We are company builders with a disciplined process.
We are driven by research, relationships and market validation.
We are continually improved by enterprise and academic participation.
We are practiced at anticipating future problems.
Our full-time team of company builders work with and for the founders.
Former CEOs, serial entrepreneurs, former leaders of Israel’s technology and intelligence Unit 8200 who bring unparalleled expertise in cybersecurity, data, and fintech.
In-house deep technological expertise to crack complex technological challenges, understand limitations of existing solutions and design the architecture of new ones.
Marketing experts and sales accelerators create access to customers and partners, provide competitive analysis, outline the customer market, support the brand and facilitate introductions to hundreds of executives from Team8’s Village.
Dedicated recruiters to tap into the top talent emerging from graduates of elite military intelligence and tech units that become the core engineering and research teams of our portfolio companies.
Team8’s dedicated community of hundreds of C-level enterprise executives and academics identify complex challenges that, once solved, will make a significant impact and help us take our companies to market.
Through ongoing collaboration between our company-builders and the Village, Team8 articulates a thesis with the confidence that a critical mass of enterprises are behind it. Then, we either invest in an existing company or partner with entrepreneurs to build a new company from scratch. Our process de-risks company-building and accelerates the path to success.
