We Build.
     We Invest.
         We Empower. 


We want to help you create a sustainable business that use technology to develop new markets, change behavior, and build a better world. We’re looking for innovative ideas and business models that defy user and market expectations.


We are a small team of founders, operators, and investors who are committed to supporting the success of our portfolio companies. Silverstone Venture Partners is transforming the status quo by investing in early-stage to growth-stage startups led by extraordinary founders across multiple tech-enabled industries.




We seek innovative ideas and enthusiastic entrepreneurs with a relentless drive for changing the world. We provide more than capital but years of experience to support our portfolio companies from being localized, to globalized. We are disciplined, passionate and hard-working - we seek out extraordinary founders that are the same way.

We value honesty, respect, and integrity. Each of our team members and startup leaders are committed to upholding the highest standards of professionalism. We encourage outside thinking and a broad array of perspectives to cultivate a culture of curiosity and diversity. We believe the highest performing enterprises are those that are built upon a team-first foundation. We empower every individual so that each member is a leader of the team.


Silverstone Venture Partners recognizes that Equity, Diversity & Inclusion (EDI) have a positive impact on both our employees, portfolio companies and society. Fostering an environment that not only respects, but also values difference is important. Diversity in experiences, knowledge and perception is crucial for our decision-making and our success. We firmly believe that our role as investor and partner, we have a duty to be socially conscious and to use our platform in a way that advances a more equitable future.

Equity, Diversity, Inclusion
