Our objective is to provide corporations with a comprehensive global perspective on emerging innovations and innovative companies to address critical objectives. Read More
- Corporate strategy development
- Increase competitive advantage of existing product lines
- Develop complimentary new lines of business
- Identify new go-to-market partners
West Capital assists in effectively engaging in this ecosystem on a national scale, providing a discipline that is consistent with large company cultures, while at the same time enhancing the innovation process in small venture backed companies. Core to our partnership is sourcing and executing strategic venture investments. West Capital enhances access, quality, volume and relevance, and develops program specific networks that provide a proxy on emerging innovations.
Most importantly, we provide our clients with a portfolio management discipline that establishes culturally consistent metrics and objective measurement. We implement a repeatable process with standard documents that enable disciplined decision making and ongoing portfolio management.
West Capital clients benefit from the combined execution of all clients on our platform, which provides a more comprehensive perspective on emerging innovations (“eyes on the world”).
West Capital designs and executes client specific innovation conferences and showcases. We believe these events are a valuable component of an innovation program. They deepen and expand networks, provide greater exposure for both portfolio companies and companies of interest, and enable visibility/engagement for operational and upper level management.

Access and Quality
The West Capital Partners Program is designed to provide qualified investors with superior access to quality investments in the venture asset class. Leveraging our corporate clients, we provide access to transactions backed by elite, national investment syndicates that are typically only available to professional, private equity and venture fund investors.

- Annual Management Fee based on Invested Capital
West Capital Advisors provides professional management of all aspects of the investment process.

As experienced venture capital investors and former entrepreneurs, we founded West Capital to be the ideal co-investor. West Capital is structured to be a value added participant, typically in Series B or later investment syndicates led by established institutional venture funds.
