We invest in next-generation companies that, with solutions integrating humanness with technology, are leading industry-wide change and fast growing markets

We specialize in under the radar, ‘sexy’ companies in ‘unsexy’ industries that are solving 21st century global challenges and are underserved by venture capital


Our team believes that achieving the full potential of 21st-century technology is more emotional and societal than technological and seek companies understanding how humanness and technology interact


We are on the cusp of the next technology revolution and investing in early-stage companies playing an essential role in integrating technology into the layers of human society matters a great deal

We should expect deviations from popular images of the future and rely less on claims of technology bringing incredible benefits. Companies understanding the likely future behavior of economies and societies are more likely to win. MIR Ventures has a process to find those companies.
