Global Venture Capital for
We Have Created a Unique Eco-system for Entrepreneurs
MTech Capital is a venture capital firm with offices in Santa Monica and London. We focus primarily on technology-enabled investment opportunities which we believe can transform one or more elements of the insurance industry. We define the insurance industry broadly to encompass all of the businesses that insurance companies are in, including asset management, wealth management and other financial services.
We believe the insurance industry is at the very beginning of a digital transformation. The transformation will be comprehensive, and we think it will entail technology redefining the customer experience, automating many business processes, enabling deeper insight for more accurate insurance pricing, and providing the foundation for entirely new models of insurance.
Our aim is to be valuable resource for you, shaped by our decades of insurance industry and venture capital experience and our access to a large global network of insurance groups that can accelerate your growth. Whether you are seeking capital or strategic advice, our goal is for MTech Capital to be your natural choice.
