iFly.vc is a VC fund based in the San Francisco Bay Area. The team focuses on investing in visionary entrepreneurs who aim to use technology solutions to transform global industries across three major themes, i.e., “Premium Consumer”, “Smart Enterprise”, and “Resource Technology”. iFly.vc accelerates value creation by a) leveraging deep networks and strategic partnerships, b) providing insights into product, market, deployment, scaling, and culture, and c) being very hands-on when working with startup teams. iFly.vc’s founding team and network comprise accomplished investors and start-up builders with years of close collaboration and solid track record.
 
Investment Strategy
iFly.vc follows a sector-thesis driven process in every investment and aims to build a concentrated portfolio with meaningful value-add to entrepreneurs. We stay away from buzz and love opportunities in spaces that are unsexy or no longer sexy. With each investment size between $2m and $5m, we focus on team, product-market fit, scalability, and capital efficiency. We either lead or follow, as long as we truthfully know what we are doing and why entrepreneurs want our money. The fund performance has proved this strategy works.
