The Opportunity

We let founders focus on their passion, and we do the rest.

Venture capital has grown at a rapid rate with funding reaching $333 billion in 2021, up from $30 billion in 2006. This trend is projected to continue at a CAGR of 21.75% from 2023-2028. Despite the increasing growth of the industry, Venture funds have a rather poor ‘hit’ ratio, with the top 5% of investments contributing to 95% of the funds returns.

While the remaining 95% of the portfolio often results in comparably modest returns, putting pressure on founders to meet exceedingly unrealistic expectations and on the fund managers ability to create liquidity.

Our Answer

Mayker focuses on this 95% of venture capital backed companies with attractive unit economics and proven products. Instead of relying on unicorn investments, we focus on profitability and sustainable growth through operational expertise and control.

Who Is Mayker Capital?

We are a Venture-Buyout firm built by Founders, for Founders

We're Founders. Investors. Entrepreneurs. Designers. Operators. Salesmen. Marketers.

Mayker Capital is a unique investment firm that is comprised of experienced entrepreneurs and operators. We differentiate ourselves through not only a unique investment approach but also how we support our partner companies.

In both areas we look to create long term sustainable value allowing us the ability to capitalize on opportunities outside traditional firm mandates; and to provide hands-on support to entrepreneurs in their journey to success.

Our Mission:

Mayker aims to be the acquirer of choice for founders.

We will accomplish this through forming long term strategic relationships with founders and their teams, ensuring open and honest communication, promoting a positive corporate culture, and by simply; saying what we mean, and doing what we say.

Seek to deploy capital quickly, with a focus on near term liquidity.

Venture-Buyout Strategy

Valuations Based on Current Earnings

Minimizing risk and decreasing payback period.

Cross-Portfolio Synergies Encouraged

Talent and data can flow freely between companies.

Long Term Vision

Deploy capital opportunistically, and allow for sustainable growth.

What Is Our Edge?

A hands-on approach combined with a long term strategic vision.


We analyze companies beyond the numbers. With our multi-disciplinary team we take a granular view on all aspects of a target companies operational processes. From this multi-faceted view point we can confidently create long term strategic plans pulling best practices from our industry playbooks long before capital is deployed.


Founders value our approach as we are not solely a platform for airing out their ideas. We offer actionable solutions and collaborate with management teams to execute on those solutions. Our method is hands-on and involved.


Unlike typical funds we do not take management fees, we align ourselves with investors through performance based incentives only. This promotes a more methodical approach to investing and removes the sense of urgency to deploy capital most managers experience.
