» About


KDWC Ventures was formed on the foundation of two distinct ideas: (i) the road to success is most often non-linear; and (ii) good ideas succeed primarily because of great execution. With these lessons in mind, we partner with entrepreneurs to give them the growth funding they need to build their businesses.

As a Chicago-based venture firm, KDWC Ventures is primarily focused on working with firms based in the Midwest. Technology company formation is happening at a rapid pace in Chicago and other cities in the Midwest, yet there are few venture firms based in the Midwest that can lead Series A/B rounds.

Drawing upon our Principals’ collective 150+ years of experience, our mission is to build a world-class investment firm, known for being great partners with portfolio company management teams while being rigorous stewards of investor capital.

We are seeking to fund initial investments ranging from $1 million to $10 million into companies with monthly recurring revenue, referenceable customers and a scalable technology platform.
