What We Look For
Essex invests in enterprises with the potential for global reach and scale — the kind of big idea that will become a category-killer, create a new market or evolve into a game-changer within a particular industry or sector.
We do not make seed investments in startups. We invest in ventures that have worked out their business model, understand where they’re headed and are ready to take that next, big step.
Opportunity meets Preparation
Explosive growth is made possible by market conditions. The scalability of the business model, organizational preparedness and proper capitalization is the best foundation for success. We provide capital, both financial and intellectual, to companies that have these qualities but have been held back by lack of resources.
Working with Essex
We've put together a process to evaluate, test and fund entrepreneurial ventures. If you’re interested in putting your idea to work, please consider following our application and vetting process.
