Voyager Capital, a Seattle, WA-based venture capital firm focused on first-round venture technology investments, raised $100m to accelerate innovation in the Cascadia market, which includes Washington, Oregon, and Western Canada.
The fund, Voyager’s fifth, has investor representation from the US, Canada, and Europe, including global family offices, foundations, trusts, fund of funds, and individuals interested in participating in the Cascadia ecosystem.
The vehicle will power first-round investments in B2B startups across cloud infrastructure, software as a service (SaaS), and vertical markets such as FinTech, MediaTech, and AgTech.
The team is committed to developing founder relationships early on in the evaluation cycle and driving scale and value acceleration through active board leadership and go-to-market coaching. By providing focused attention throughout the early stages of company building, Voyager allows startups to grow teams, broker strategic partnerships, and acquire new customers to accelerate time to revenue.
The fund has already closed five new investments.
Led by Bill McAleer, Founder and Managing Director, and Diane Fraiman, Managing Director, Voyager has $520M under management and offices in Seattle, Wash., Portland, Ore., and Vancouver, BC.
