We believe the most important companies of the next decade will be B2B Marketplaces. These businesses leverage a new model to deliver software to markets traditionally inaccessible to technology. We call this emerging model "Software-as-a-Marketplace" and believe it will prove similar in importance to SaaS in terms of technology value creation.
Having partnered with 25+ B2B Marketplaces over the last decade, however, we've found that they are frequently misunderstood and often overlooked. We founded Euclid Ventures to meet the unique needs of B2B Marketplace founders at the early stage and to deliver the kind of purpose-built partnership every entrepreneur deserves.
Finding product-market fit for B2B Marketplaces is hard. We've helped dozens of companies reach this critical early milestone.
B2B Marketplaces grow differently. We help you optimize liquidity, monetization, and G2M to inflect your business.
Navigating an early-stage fundraise as a B2B Marketplace founder can be challenging. We'll help you position your business and reach the right target audience.
