INVESTMENT CRITERIA

Technology

Great North Ventures believes the best opportunities leverage new technology, especially exponential technologies, to solve bold problems. We invest in tech companies that fit these themes:

1. Digital Transformation Through AI

2. Solving Labor Problems

3. Community-Driven Applications.

Location

We invest in startups anywhere. Our headquarters is in the Upper Midwest, where we have significant network density. We are guided by opportunity, though, not geography.

Market Potential

Our team has experience leading companies from domestic to global markets and we prefer those that have this potential. We are interested in startups solving bold problems and therefore must be convinced that your total addressable market (“TAM”) opportunity is in excess of $1B.

Business Model

We look for evidence of strong product/market fit. We also require a quick path to market: first revenue within 12 months after investment, $100K per month by 24 months, $50M+ in annual revenue run rate and positive EBITDA by month 60.
