Note:  O'Connor Ventures is currently seeking additional investments.

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.
