Unprecedented technological change offers unprecedented opportunities for alpha returns

Who Are We – Our thesis

CP Ventures is a boutique VC fund that’s run by Emlyn Scott and Chris Sang, that invests internationally in early stage, highly scalable, breakthrough technology companies driven by the 4th industrial revolution.

Our Thesis Explained

Boutique VC Fund – Only a small and focused VC fund can invest effectively at the pre-Seed & Seed stage, where extremely high IRRs can be achieved.

Invest Internationally – Most Unicorns in the western world are still US based. We have invested in companies in the US, Hong Kong, Singapore, India, Sth America, New Zealand and of course Australia.

Highly Scalable – T2D3 (triple, triple, double, double, double) revenue capability.

Breakthrough Technology – introduces a radically new capability or a performance improvement of at least an order of magnitude.

4th Industrial Revolution – 4IR or Industry 4.0 represents the 15 key technologies of the future.

How We’re Unique

Performance – Fund 1 and now Fund 2 have quickly become some of the best performing VC funds in the world. We enjoy personal Unicorn investments.

Experience – We’re successful founders having founded companies worth hundreds of millions and have over 100 personal angel and fund investments globally, including 5 unicorns.

Boutique Model – We invest globally at the Pre-Seed and Seed stages, and win deals via our nimble and professional process. Our LPs tell us we provide more transparency than any other VC.

Speed – We will often make a decision and be willing to issue a term sheet within 24 hours of meeting a startup

Founder friendly – We are successful founders and understand the journey. We don’t invest via harsh pref shares, but align our performance with founders. We only win when the founders’ win.

    Our Ethos


    We look for startups and investors who understand that working and supporting each other as a team is how you get ahead, and enjoy doing it!


    Do the right thing! No-one should win at the expense of someone else. We don’t and we expect our founders, investors and wider network to feel the same way.


    Great companies are built on solid foundations of governance and business disciplines. Excellent investments occur when thorough processes are defined and followed.


    We are extremely open and honest with our investors. We expect our startups to be open and honest too, warts and all, to us and our investors.
