  • WE ARE STRUCTURE CAPITAL

  • WE ARE ZERO WASTE

  • WE ARE THE FUTURE  

Architects of the Zero Waste Economy℠

Our portfolio companies span a range of verticals, but they have one thing in common: they strive to eliminate waste. They create significant value out of under-utilized assets. They use precious resources efficiently, reduce overhead, empower individuals, put people to work and help communities grow. They enable more timely and relevant products and experiences, remove friction, and shorten the distance between supply and demand. They use cutting edge technology fueled by AI and deep data learning to re-invent disruption.

CREATING ZERO WASTE BY ACCESSING

Under-Utilized Assets & Excess Capacity

We see the invisible. 

We see the potential in an idle car or tow truck, an empty stadium seat, a drawer full of outgrown kids clothes, or a vacant workspace. We invest in companies that give structure to the invisible and turn it into something valuable.

 

Why Now?

Our Team

Not your typical venture team. We’re a diverse team with a vast set of complementary expertise rooted in entrepreneurial success. We have created and built companies that have been acquired for hundreds of millions of dollars. We’ve spotted the billion-dollar plus ‘unicorns’ with early investments in Uber and Salesforce.

With over 70 years combined experience, we bring ideas, guidance and support to our portfolio companies across a wide range of expertise including: Engineering, Sales, Marketing/PR, Science, Media/Entertainment, Law, Politics/Policy.

We value diversity, empathy and sustainability. We believe they fuel the financial success of our portfolio.

Meet the Team

Our Special Sauce

The special sauce we offer our portfolio companies is a creative branding experience called Brand Camp. The talented team of Goodby, Silverstein & Partners (GSP) is our grand partner for Brand Camp, who is part of the Omnicom Group, the third largest global ad agency.

Together we distill, we craft, we create a truthful narrative of the brand, which is the foundation of the brand that these companies can build upon.

"It's Powerful, It Works, its Fast, It’s Fun. It’s the Future"

— Rich Silverstein, Co-Chairman and a Creative Director at Goodby, Silverstein & Partners —

The sharing economy helps people and companies do more with less — a necessity as the global population grows and the world’s natural resources deplete.

What our Entrepreneurs say

  • The entire Structure team provided outstanding value to us from our seed through growth stage. Mike has been helpful every step of the way for capital raising, Jillian’s help in solidifying our culture is unparalleled, and Jacob has been feeding us top candidates and opportunities. Most importantly, this team has their heart in the right place with a genuine desire to be helpful to their portfolio companies.

    — Francis Davidson, CEO Sonder —
  • Structure VC is and has consistently been one of HONK’s favorite and most impactful investors. Jillian, Mike, and Jacob are incredibly well connected and have always been helpful with introductions to investors, industry experts, and senior executives at top companies. They organize and host events, such as BrandCamp and OpsCamp, that help portfolio companies truly move the needle. Once, when we had a “DEFCON 5” level issue with the App Store, the Structure team came to our rescue and saved us from a potentially disastrous situation. This is the type of team that founders dream about having on their side… I cannot say enough positive things about Structure VC!

    — Corey Brundage, CEO HONK —
  • The Structure Capital team were crucial to our early success. From helping develop our brand, to sourcing new business partners, and of course helping secure next rounds of financing, Structure has been an invaluable partner in every step of Peerspace’s journey.

    — Rony Chammas, CEO Peerspace —
  • From the first check through major scale, Structure has been there for me as a great partner every step of the way!

    — Kathryn Minshew, CEO The Muse —

Australia is on fire

Australia is on fire, and we’d like to help. We’re offering you 15 minutes to provide feedback on your startup. It could be to review a deck, offer advice, potentially make an intro if it’s a good fit for both parties. Structure Capital isn’t making any net new investments at the moment as we’re focusing on investing in the later stages of our current portfolio, so please don’t expect that.

What you can expect is:
* Our undivided attention for 15 minutes
* Feedback based on 130 seed investments, 5 of which are now unicorns (worth $1B+)
* A shoutout thanking you on my social networks (LinkedIn, Facebook and Instagram)
* Loads of gratitude

The offer is that you donate $1,000 to the Australian organization of your choice, to help the cause. It could for wildlife relief, firefighters, families – whatever you choose. We know it’s a lot of money, but it’s a big fire. We likely have time for 10 calls this week. We may ask some friends to offer the same, but we first want their permission to tag them. Please email [email protected] for a slot. We won’t get in the middle of your donation but would love to know where it went, simply so we can learn about all of them.

Thank you for your generous consideration.

Peace.

Mike Walsh
Managing Partner at Structure Capital
