Zenda Capital is a thesis-driven, tech investment firm led by operators investing their own money. Our team started and exited three companies, and helped build the foundational team that scaled Twilio to $60Bn in market cap.
We win by investing in category-dominant, B2B tech companies before they're obvious. We apply the same approach through which we’ve built a track-record of outperformance (7.5x MOIC, +110% IRR*)
We partner with founders in the U.S. and LATAM as early as the formation stage, and support them through early-growth. Our first checks range from $250k to $1.5M, sometimes as co-founders of companies.
We operate as business owners, and not just investors. Our focus is on helping founders solve problems for which there are no playbooks, but where our capital, operating experience, and network can help.
🔥 Our Mission
We believe entrepreneurship is one of the greatest expressions of purpose by mankind.
We look to find the best, overlooked, B2B entrepreneurs and be the first to invest in them. Our background as B2B founders and operators gives us an edge in connecting with these entrepreneurs and helping them win.
