MadDog Ventures

Who We Are


Mad Dog Ventures Management, LLC (“MadDog Ventures”) is a newly-formed venture capital firm organized in response to the opportunity created by its affiliate, Mad Dog Technology, LLC (“MadDog Technology”). MadDog Technology, independently and through joint ventures, creates and accelerates cloud-based business applications that disrupt existing industry models and help monetize underutilized information. The mission of MadDog Ventures is to invest in both existing MadDog Technology companies and in other companies that develop and market cloud-based business applications.

Our job is to help companies create digital enterprises that they never knew existed. This is no easy task, which is why I hand-picked these folks to partner in the fund. The power of this kind of thinking concentrated in one place is staggering. I want you to meet them all because, well, they are MadDog Ventures.
