“Mindgrub Ventures works with and invests in SaaS companies in disruptive markets that are driving the convergence of man and machine: the singularity point from which the whole is greater than the sum of its parts,” says Todd Marks, Mindgrub Ventures’ Managing Partner.

In addition to financial capital, investment expertise, and strategic support, Mindgrub Ventures portfolio companies can exchange equity for product development services from Mindgrub Technologies.

Many of their existing portfolio companies have worked with Mindgrub’s award-winning team of engineers, designers, product owners, and go-to-market strategists to help turn great ideas into remarkable digital experiences.

We are honored to work with the Mindgrub Ventures team, whose positivity and professionalism made every aspect of the product development process seamless for Magikmo.”
