A VERY DIFFERENT KIND OF INVESTOR
SIG venture capital has no fixed time horizons and is not subject to the vagaries of the fundraising cycle. We can be flexible in the types of deals we do, the securities we hold, and the risks we take. Above all, our culture is to stay out of the spotlight while we support and highlight the successes of our entrepreneurs.
Our capital comes from Susquehanna International Group, LLP (SIG), one of the world’s largest privately-held financial services firms. Founded in 1987 and headquartered in the US, SIG has grown to over 2,500 employees across the globe, while continuing to be owned and operated by its founders who are actively engaged. SIG’s business thrives at the intersection of trading, quantitative research and technology. We are proud to be a part of one of the biggest bootstrapped, entrepreneurial success stories in history.
SIG empowers our investment teams to invest across different strategies and geographies. We believe in employing a rigorous bottom up approach in creating our thesis. Our focus on working with and supporting management teams post investment allows our entrepreneurs to adjust to the dynamics of emerging markets and new sectors. We find repeatable, sustainable success when we actively collaborate with our entrepreneurs and support their growth through our ability to provide capital from Series A to IPO and access to the family of investments and experiences at SIG.
