Is An Early-stage Venture Capital Fund

Signal Peak Ventures is an early-stage venture capital fund that invests in technology companies in established markets, primarily outside of Silicon Valley. We invest at a company’s inflection point as entrepreneurs find product-market fit and are ready to scale aggressively. Our team generally leads financings with initial equity check sizes between $3M-$7M. We back exceptional teams that are attacking big problems in a unique way.

We believe investing is all about people. It starts with the people that invest in our funds as Limited Partners and ends with the people that we back as entrepreneurs. We are fortunate to be entrusted with the capital and the ability to work every day with incredible entrepreneurs. It is our mission to provide capital, expertise, and our collective experience to help these founders execute their visions and build significant companies with enduring value.

Signal Peak Ventures was formed in 2012 when three experienced industry professionals – Brandon Tidwell, Scott Petty, and Ron Heinz – combined forces to help build a next-generation venture firm capitalizing on the hard-won frontier market wisdom gained from investing in the Utah tech ecosystem. Prior to the combination, each of the three partners had extensive, successful track records of venture capital investing, both inside and outside of Utah. In 2018, Ben Dahl joined as the fourth Managing Director. Ben brings 10+ years of venture capital investing experience, a unique and diverse network, and an outstanding track record. We are better  together; we have the combination of talent, energy, and experience to build a firm that survives us all and continues to generate exceptional returns for our investors.

At SPV, we strive to be hands-on, ego-free and founder-friendly investors. We create value for portfolio companies through a collaborative approach – contributing strategic, financial, and operational expertise. We work hard for our founders through making early introductions to key customers, strategic partners and co investors, and by helping to recruit top executives.

While we don’t exclusively invest in Utah, the state has been at the core of our strategy since inception and we are strong believers in the future of the tech ecosystem up and down I-15. Utah is and always will be home base for the firm. Collectively, the Managing Directors have put hundreds of millions of dollars to work in the Beehive state in companies that have employed thousands of people and generated well over a billion dollars of value.
