Formed in 1996, Warbros is a private investment firm owned and managed by John and Michael Warburg. We take minority positions in expansion-stage companies that are typically looking to raise between $250,000 and $2 million – in other words, companies whose financing requirements have outgrown the resources of “friends and family”, yet are still too small to attract the attention of traditional venture capital.
Our investment size is usually in the $100,000 to $500,000 range. If needed, we can make introductions to other potential co-investors through our extensive network of angel investors and small venture capital firms. In addition to bringing in capital, we look to add value through our financial and marketing expertise, as well as through our contacts in a wide variety of industries.
We focus on companies with unique consumer product or business service offerings, primarily in the New England or Metro New York areas. We generally do not consider opportunities in life sciences, IT/software, digital media, and cleantech. For more information, see Investment Criteria.
