MTS Fund

MTS is a seed venture capital fund created in 2012 by ex-Googler Marco Marinucci to invest in startups with an international soul.

We invests in 6 to 12 startups per year (usually with first checks in the $30K-150K range) providing both seed funding  and value-added services.
We leverage the support of our partner Mind the Bridge Foundation and the scouting activities we run for Startup Europe Partnership.
We tend to invest in startups where we can identify a clear exit strategy.

Besides offering a seed investment, when relevant, we help international founders set up shops in Silicon Valley, localize the operations, get the most appropriate visas, expand the team, support to additional funding. We are also interested in Silicon Valley startups that can be relevant for our extensive network of corporations.

The Fund is managed by MTS Venture Partners, the managing company led by Marco Marinucci, Managing Partner, Alberto Onetti and Matteo Daste.
