    7Touch Ventures
    morphing ideas into disruption
    Translation: We build cool stuff with great teams. :)

What We Do the special sauce

7Touch Ventures is a unique and innovative pre-product startup studio and incubator. We invest technology development, human capital, strategy, and execution into ideas (with no existing products) in exchange for equity. Once we turn ideas into working products, we build world-class teams around our portfolio companies and help them drive growth and raise investment capital when needed. It comes down to this: we get concepts to market then we grow them! Each year, we launch / graduate a class of at least 12 platforms by taking them to market and pushing them out to the world.

Ideation & Planning

idea generation / market research

We look for big market problems and ways to make life better. Our network and our team keep their ears to the ground on the latest trends.

Technology Investment

development resources to launch

We provide our portfolio companies with the development strategy and resources to take their products to market quickly and inexpensively.

Product Strategy & Vision

creating the product roadmap

We guide our portfolio companies to design and implement feature-rich products with intuitive user interfaces across all platforms and devices.

Team Building

getting the right people

We help build world class teams around our portfolio companies and ensure that the right people are doing the right things.

Marketing & Growth

managing sustainable growth

We help our portfolio companies grow by working with them to take advantage of all marketing and distribution channels during their launch phase.

Fundraising & Viability

funding the growth

All of our portfolio companies are promising but not all of them are ready for cash investment. Regardless of state, we help position them all for future fundraising.
