Looking for Silvertree investment?

What we do

Silvertree Internet Holdings builds real businesses — and that means more than merely providing office space and some token equity. In addition to substantial equity investment, and depending on the needs of your business, we can help with some or all of:

  • Access to large-scale investors for rapid growth
  • Professional management or management support
  • Business plan and model development, consulting and/or feedback
  • Marketing, logistics, IT, talent management and other support functions.

We are interested in strong concepts with the foundations of a good team, meeting our investment criteria, and with the potential to rapidly reach scale.

 

What we don’t do

  • We DON’T invest into concept-level businesses. You should be post-revenue with good unit economics.
  • We DON’T do angel/small scale investments. We invest to change the future of companies.
  • We DON’T offer support (eg. marketing, advice, software development) that does not also include an equity investment. We are an investor, not a consultancy.
  • We DON’T enjoy secret ideas, non-disclosure agreements, or holding meetings before we receive company details by email. If secrecy is the only thing protecting your company, then the moment you release your product, you have no competitive advantage. We invest for execution ability, not secret ideas.
  • We DON’T invest in companies that don’t have a tech and/or Internet aspect to their business.

We receive hundreds of pitches a year, and do not have time to meet everyone that contacts us — sorry! You may have a great concept, but our capacity constraints require the above restrictions.
