Investing
Venture Capital in the Future of Retail

RevTech Ventures is an early-stage venture capital firm that invests in retail technology. Our mentors have over 1,000 years of cumulative experience in the retail industry. RevTech focuses on entrepreneurs and technology innovation in retail technology. We have been the catalyst for over $250 million of startup capitalization. Our focus is to accelerate the growth of top-tier, retail tech startups. This is accomplished through seed funding, mentorship, and strategic connections. Very often we serve as a catalyst to a priced round of funding. We lead or follow at the pre-seed and seed stage – typically, we are one of the first institutional investors. Our first check is ~$100K; as companies grow, we reserve follow-on capital to support them in future rounds, typically $200K – $4M. While we are headquartered in Dallas, our investments span across the globe.

Our Mission

We invest venture capital in technologies and concepts that help the retail industry adapt in the age of Amazon.

While constituting only about 5% of North American retail sales market share today, Amazon commands nearly half the sector’s R&D and innovation budget, leaving the other 95% playing catch-up.
We are committed to investing venture capital in cutting-edge solutions that enable retailers to thrive.

From connecting me to the RIGHT advisors to helping me vet my first hires, RevTech goes beyond the call of an investor to make sure we are supported on all fronts. Whenever I face a challenge, they are the first people I call. They always have the expertise and perspective to help me succeed.

RevTech have been with us from the very beginning, for which we are very grateful. They were immediately supportive of our concept and have participated in each of our rounds from pre-seed to Series A. Over the years, beyond investments, they’ve made innumerable thoughtful introductions, hosted fantastic events, and, generally, been great, supportive partners. We’re fortunate to work with such a great team.

RevTech was great. We got a lot of early mentorship from some experienced retail leaders and understanding around how tech purchases are made in those environments.
