    Description:

    Diamondhead Ventures is an early-stage technology venture capital firm investing in start-ups with disruptive innovations. Diamondhead focuses primarily on early stage opportunities and leverages close relationships with leading research universities to discover the most promising ideas. The firm believes that spin-out opportunities offer significant capital efficiency benefits by leveraging prior research and development efforts, thereby enabling Diamondhead to fund emerging technologies at lower risk and lower cost than typical early stage opportunities. Diamondhead makes initial seed and Series A investments ranging from $500,000 to $5 million. Diamondhead's sphere of technology focus includes information security, enterprise 2.0, and cross-discipline areas, such as computational biology. Unlike many venture capital firms, they will invest in a company prior to the full development of the technology and/or management team. Diamondhead was founded in 2000 and the firm's $140 million inaugural fund is currently showing returns n the top quartile for performance of vintage 2000 funds.
