Note: O'Connor Ventures is no longer seeking additional investments. About a year ago, I decided to pursue my own startup - FindTheBest.com - and this has become more than a full-time job. FindTheBest is an objective comparison search engine that allows you to find a topic, compare your options and decide what's best for you. Ultimately, FindTheBest allows you to make faster and more informed decisions by allowing you to easily compare all the available options.
O'Connor Ventures is a small firm consisting of, basically, me - Kevin O'Connor. My group of investors is equally small, though often times others will co-invest in companies where I make an investment.
I bring a unique combination of assets to a startup company. I have been involved running my own startups for over 25 years so I understand entrepreneurs and founders very well. I have also invested in many companies and have sat on four public and many private company boards - so I understand investors. I have had tremendous success, along with many mistakes, and these experiences can help you.
My approach to investing is simple. I want to find companies that fill a fundamental consumer or business need in the most efficient way. Cool technology just doesn't cut it - your product has to solve a real problem. I'm looking for management teams that are smart, competitive and aggressive. I'm not looking for people wanting to make a quick buck or to simply get rich - I want to find people who love what they do. I have found if you love what you do and you fill a real need, you'll eventually get rich and have a lot more fun.
If you are located in Southern or Central California and have a technology company with both product and revenue, please drop me an email and let's talk.
