Early stage investments from involved principals.Blu provides initial growth-stage funding and active mentorship to early-stage companies, while delivering strong returns for its members and the entrepreneurs we support. We promote job creation and professional development in our community.Experienced InvestingAs an entrepreneur, a lot is riding on your shoulders. Your family, friends, and employees are counting on you. Even when you’re not at work you’re thinking about your business. Am I doing the right thing? What is the right way to grow? What have I not thought of that is going to harm my business?Every principal at Blu has built a business (or two or three). We know what it’s like to give the big presentation to your biggest customer in the morning and empty the rubbish bins at night.While every company aspires to be a “unicorn”, the reality is that only 0.14% of venture-backed consumer and enterprise tech startups will reach a valuation of $1 billion or more. The good news is that as an entrepreneur, you don’t need to be a unicorn to be wildly successful—and neither do we. As a Primary Source VC, our own capital is invested alongside yours. The majority of tech M&A occurs in the $15-$30 million range. We like to invest in companies that aspire to grow beyond this measure, but for whom an exit in this range would still represent a rewarding success.
