We will create a best-in-class venture fund capitalizing on the strength, creativity and innovation found in entrepreneurial companies in the US Southwest.


Turquoise, the elusive native blue stone of the Southwest is thought to attract success and money. Its power brings protection, courage and friendship, and is thus highly prized and the basis for our firm’s name.

Each of us have roots in the Southwest and our experience has shown that there are investment gems likewise hidden in the desert Southwest.  There is a dearth of venture capitalists in the region despite strong universities, unique research centers and significant infrastructure. We believe that our management skills, existing deal pipelines and relationships with industry leading advisors and co-investors will enable us to choose companies wisely and in so doing create value for investors.
