New Name + New Venture Studio
Welcome to the Great North Ventures newsletter!
Yes, you read that correctly: Great North Ventures. We have had some big news come out lately, and the name change to Great North Ventures better reflects our organization.
We Launched a Venture Studio
The Great North Venture Studio co-creates startups to tackle focused market opportunities. We pair with talented founders and operators to generate 1-2 startups every year. The first startup is a consumer app in the collectible sports card trading space.
Read more about the venture studio in our announcement.
The ideal companies that will launch from the studio are quick-to-market, digital products focused on health care and life sciences, financial services, consumers, real estate, transport and logistics, workforce development and education, and business-to-business.
New Name, New Venture Studio, and New Fund
These changes are all connected to our investing. As we complete our final investments from our inaugural fund and start investing from Fund II, we have evolved our model.
By co-creating ventures, we will produce unique deals for investors, and unique opportunities for talented operators.
By widening our geographic focus to invest in founders wherever they are, we are open to more quality early-stage opportunities and founders.
By changing our name, we reflect these changes from our Fund I model to our new investment strategy.
Stay tuned for more changes as we update our content and presence across online platforms, to clarify and better serve investors, founders, and talented operators.
