Orange Island Ventures’ mission is to build relationships with entrepreneurs of early stage, high quality and high growth companies focused on emerging market opportunities that have a nexus with Florida.

Investment Thesis

Our investment thesis is premised upon an understanding that the collective intellectual power of our capital partners will provide each of us with an opportunity to pursue new ventures and to share ideas and knowledge with the entrepreneurs that we partner with. We seek to create the opportunity for our partners to mentor and advise the senior executives of the company’s in which we invest.

Our team has extensive experience in founding, building, and managing companies in a wide variety of industries.
