    Aurelia Ventures was the first venture firm that we had the opportunity to work with which truly allowed us to get up on our feet with the foundational tools and technologies required for a software startup. It's the best 'Startup Package for Startups' that I saw in the market that helped me filter through all the productivity tools, cloud environments and more - in order to focus on product development - with nice discounts! Thanks to Felix and the team for being so responsive and fun to work with ????

    Our business grew to over 1.5m users in under 6 months. Our server costs were ballooning faster than we could iterate our pricing structure. Aurelia Ventures gave us immediate access to hosting credits allowing for some breathing space to align our costs and pricing structure without needing to limit our growth trajectory.

Most of our portfolio companies come from the US, Canada, the UK, Germany, Singapore, and Australia, but we occasionally work with companies outside of these key places.

    What matters is:
    • You are building a product or service that has software at its core.
    • Your team members have tech industry experience.
    It doesn’t matter:
    • If your product is live or if you are in the ideation phase.
    • If you generate revenue.
    • How many people work in your company or if it’s only you.
    • Your location.

    Our low-commitment program structure is personalized to your company and its needs. The frequency of our meetings depends on how much you need our support. We are here to make scaling companies more efficient, not to add to your to-do list.

    Application Process

    The whole process from application to acceptance takes between 2-3 business days. We know speed is essential and some things can't wait.
