Nevada's State Venture Capital Program

The Battle Born team is currently preparing for the implementation of the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021.  We continue to invest through this transition period, but are prioritizing the following categories:
•    Spinouts from our Nevada universities
•    Supporting our Battle Born portfolio companies
•    Targeted investment in new companies which are referred by co-investors or network partners, such as Nevada SBDC

Who We Are

Battle Born is an evergreen venture capital program, overseen by the Nevada Governor’s Office of Economic Development (GOED) under the auspices of the US Treasury’s State Small Business Credit Initiative (SSBCI).

 

Our Mandate

Battle Born’s mandate is to invest in the highest return prospects, those that have the potential to provide at least a 15% IRR to the program.

 

What We Look For

We prioritize companies whose high-growth products and services have an enduring sustainable advantage over competitors, that have traction with customers, and that have teams with a proven track record in their industry.
