About

Royal Street Ventures is a Utah-based venture capital firm that has expanded into the Kansas City region. Our direct investment strategy means we are involved with our entrepreneurs in a meaningful way.

We believe in investing in highly ethical, smart-working listeners who seek committed partners to help them build their businesses. We invest in companies based in the Mountain West and Midwest with select engagements in the Pacific Northwest and California. If we can’t be on-site with a company in three hours, we can’t be a good partner.

As early-stage investors, we love to make good ideas into great companies. The company we invest in on Day 1 will likely look very different on Day 2. Capital efficiency is key. We’re looking for great entrepreneurs, not sectors. We are most often part of the first “organized money” invested in companies. We expect our companies to have customers beyond the founders’ uncle or their best friends. We want to be highly engaged in a way that is most helpful to the company. We coach companies to hit milestones that create a sustainable business.

We look for companies who:

  • Can use capital efficiently
  • Do not require large sums of future capital to scale
  • Can generate meaningful revenue quickly
  • Can create shareholder value at each stage of growth
