Serra Ventures is an early stage venture capital firm investing in technology companies in emerging Midwest technology centers and selected other geographies. Sectors we focus on include information technology, devices/instrumentation and agricultural technologies.

We fund startups with the following characteristics: - Teams that have strong industry and/or technical experience. - A capital efficient business model. - Demonstrated product-market fit. - Referenceable customer base. - Strong patent or technology advantage. We are headquartered in the University of Illinois Research Park in Champaign, Illinois. Champaign’s central Midwest location enables us to act local in several Midwest markets.
