The holidays are here, and we have a lot to be grateful for as a firm before we go to celebrate with our loved ones. Before we enter 2022 (crazy to even type that number!), we wanted to pause and say thank you to all of you: our founders, the incredible teams, our investors, and of course, the Next Coast Ventures family. You all made 2021 a great year!
The future is looking merry and bright at Next Coast Ventures. Now, here are:
And because we couldn’t resist celebrating our cities, our last ones are how we are thankful to be located in (in our opinion) one of the greatest cities in the world…Austin, Texas!
21 Reasons to be Grateful in ‘21
As a firm with a mantra of being built “for entrepreneurs, by entrepreneurs,” it was time to redesign our website to reflect how much we truly want to keep the Entrepreneur as our main focus.
Sometimes the world of Venture Capital can feel like, “Look what we did!” or “Go us! We’re great.” And while we do hope people think we are great, we really wanted our focus to be on the entrepreneur.
We are a team of former entrepreneurs ourselves and know the blood, sweat, and tears it takes to push a venture up a hill. We want the entrepreneurs to see in our new site that we are there for them.
We want them to think, “Damn. I want those people on my team.”
We want them to know, this isn’t about us or our egos. This is about their venture and what their venture will do to make the world a better place.
So, this new website is all about the Entrepreneur. Our current entrepreneurs, and hopefully...the future ones who are soon to join the Next Coast portfolio.
Check it out here.
Simple. Clean. Sassy. Pointed.
We wanted to cut the marketing fluff with our design.
Do you ever feel like all venture capital sites kind of say the same thing?...And yes, there is no getting around the basics of, “Hi, we are a VC firm.” But we also wanted the site to say, “Look, we took the time to write the copy on this website ourselves. We aren’t robots. This really is us brainstorming in a Google Doc.”
We want everyone who visits the site to feel our humanity.
At the end of the day, we are a team of entrepreneurs looking for more entrepreneurs to do more entrepreneurship together...because we love it.
