Thomvest is a $300mm cross-stage venture capital fund based in Silicon Valley and Toronto. We are investing the capital of one individual, Peter Thomson, whose family owns the majority of Thomson Reuters. Peter started Thomvest in 1996 and has invested in more than 50 private companies since that time.
We primarily invest across three areas: financial and real estate technology, cybersecurity and cloud infrastructure, and sales and marketing technology. As part of our focus on these areas, we are committed to helping our companies become leaders in their fields through our work with them and through our focus on understanding where value can be created in these industries, as can be seen from the research we publish regularly.
We've structured the firm to be vertically-oriented, leveraging our network and expertise within each vertical to support our portfolio and identify leading companies.
