A COLLABORATIVE APPROACH FOR MUTUAL SUCCESS
A Unique Collaborative Approach
CenterPoint is unique in a number of critical ways — starting with our proven collaborative approach to venture capital investments. We work together with our portfolio companies to help build productive management teams, implement effective business models and develop strategic technologies that can revolutionize their markets.
Our “next door, same suite” access to a variety of top tier syndicate partners provides great value to the entrepreneur. The Firm has built a strong set of relationships through which investment opportunities can be sourced, evaluated and co-funded. Free and open interaction among multiple venture firms provides access to capital, talent, deep investment experience and knowledge regarding investment activity outside the region has proven to be a successful business approach. In both our Dallas and Austin locations we have co-located our offices with firms such as Arch Venture Partners, InterWest Partners, Sevin Rosen Funds and Star Ventures.
STARTech is a “for-profit” business accelerator that has developed into an excellent source of well-qualified early-stage deals in both Dallas and Austin. STARTech is designed to seed very early-stage companies that are not quite ready for their first round of venture capital. The program is unique because of the technology executive leadership, funding support, and broad network of service and technology companies that are stakeholders.
