We are a venture capital firm that invests in companies that develop and market cloud-based business applications that disrupt existing industry models and help monetize underutilized information.
MadDog Ventures provides both capital and operating expertise to help businesses grow and meet their full potential. The operating expertise goes well beyond the “executive leadership” support offered by many venture capital funds to include direct support for application development, sales, finance, marketing and administration.
CHANGING HOW INDUSTRIES DO BUSINESS
