SWS Venture Capital is a Pasadena, California-based venture capital firm founded by American entrepreneur and Green Dot Corporation Founder/ CEO, Steve Streit. The firm is focused on both active and passive investments in early stage companies within the consumer products and technology sectors.
SWS employs a two pronged investment strategy. First, as an active investor, SWS seeks to partner with passionate entrepreneurs to provide the operational and financial support needed to help incubate their business from a pre-revenue concept into a growing, profitable enterprise. Second, as a passive investor, SWS focuses on partnering with leading, established venture capital firms to provide fast-track funding for co-investments where our domain expertise and deep network provide a strategic advantage.
At the intersection of entrepreneurial passion and our business expertise, our mission is to help new opportunities emerge.
We help people build what comes next: a future transformed.
Where passion meets innovation,
This is where we are transforming the future…
