Detroit Venture Partners
Josh Linkner is the CEO of Detroit Venture Partners, a venture capital firm based in downtown Detroit.
We're a Detroit-based Venture Capital firm on a crazed mission. We back seed and early-stage technology companies who have a purpose.
Our purpose is to help rebuild the Detroit area through entrepreneurial fire. We view business building as a palate for creative expression and an opportunity to make a difference and change the world. If not, why bother?
We are creative business builders, not money managers. We are entrepreneurs helping other entrepreneurs build and grow meaningful companies.
It's not just about the idea or the industry. To us, it's about backing passionate entrepreneurs that can both dream and execute. Great thinking trumps fancy diplomas. Imagination beats pedigree.
Looking for investment opportunities in these sectors: internet, digital media, marketing technology, direct-to-consumer, sports & entertainment, social media, e-commerce, software. Your biotech or advanced manufacturing idea may be groundbreaking, but that's not our focus. We'd just screw it up if we got involved.
