About Next Level Ventures
Who We Are
Next Level Ventures is an Iowa-based strategic investment firm striving to fuel innovation and economic growth in the Midwest and beyond. We provide strategic investment partnerships for technology companies ranging from seed funding for early-stage companies to growth-stage capital management.
We manage over $300 million in assets across a portfolio of over 30 companies and two large-scale strategies. Our Iowa strategic investment funds back the state's most innovative companies in sectors such as agtech, datatech, fintech, healthtech, and IoT. Our Curql Fund is the largest credit union-backed strategic investment fund. It provides fintech investment that connects firms to our nationwide network of forward-thinking credit unions.
What We Do
As an innovative Iowa strategic investment firm, we use our funds to help companies interested in scaling rapidly. Our typical investments range from $0.5 to $10 million per business. After investing, we take a proactive role in entrepreneurial support in order to help our portfolio companies succeed with financial, operational, and networking expertise.
We are entrepreneurs, technologists, and executives with extensive industry expertise in all aspects of the strategic investment fund sector. We’re well-versed in raising capital, analyzing strategic options, and running businesses.
As a strategic investment company, a key metric of success is the return for our investors. However, we strongly believe that true success comes from making a meaningful contribution. We do this by supporting not only our great entrepreneurs but also the related non-profits that incubate the ideas that lead to promising opportunities.
