Vault Fund is a Champion of Visionary Founders that See the Future.
We empower these founders to have a greater impact on our world through building more… faster.
We believe talent comes in all shapes and sizes regardless of race, gender, age, or origin.
We believe company creation funds create a step change to traditional venture capital and we’re not afraid to buck the trend in order to seek better returns because we know the strength of a repeatable playbook, shared services, emerging talent, and a faster path to startup scale.
We believe the best time to invest in an idea is on Day Zero. Instead of following the money, we become the money.
Major companies today were born from great ideas of yesterday. We seek those great ideas today in order to create the major companies of tomorrow.
We are passionate about the strength of the company creation fund business model and believe it can help solve some of the biggest problems facing the world.
