objective at Gazelle TechVentures is to be the hub of
venture capital activity in Indiana and one of the most
respected, leading funds in the Midwest.
The formation of the Gazelle Fund is the result of
literally thousands of conversations over the past several
years between entrepreneurs, government officials, University
administration and faculty, private investors and business
leaders about the need for more early stage and venture
capital in Indiana. While the universities, local technology
businesses and entrepreneurs continue to create attractive
investing opportunities, Indiana lags in investing in
those opportunities. The existence of a wide funding
gap presents a tremendous investment opportunity for
investors in the Gazelle Fund.
Gazelle TechVentures, Inc. was created when a number
of senior Indiana business leaders assembled to address
the funding gap as a business opportunity. This group
set out to create an aggressive and well-capitalized
venture capital company based on the best national models
of success. As members of the General Partner's Executive
Committee they have committed their time and their capital
to the objective of making Gazelle "The hub of venture
capital activity in Indiana and one of the most respected,
leading funds in the Midwest."
