DOMI VENTURES

What do they do?
Domi is focused on the curation of early phase startup companies. A primary goal of the company is to grow the technology community in the Tallahassee area and leverage the largely untapped human and intellectual capital and resources from Florida State University, Florida A&M University, and Tallahassee Community College. Domi will provide seed funding for companies that have promising ideas and business models. The Domi management team is well connected with local investors and venture capital firms across the nation. As of today, the Domi partners have raised $50M in venture funding for successful technology startups. With this complete ecosystem, companies can grow from concept to M&A or IPO in the Tallahassee area. Services provided by Domi include: Mentoring - Led by seasoned entrepreneurs and a full life cycle support staff, Domi will work with companies to develop their concept, business model, technology, staffing model, investor pitch, organizational structure, sales strategy and go to market model. Learning Environment - Workshops, guest speakers, entrepreneurs, investors and educators will provide an ongoing learning environment to help provide the tools needed for success and growth. Seed Funding - Promising early stage companies will be eligible for seed funding to develop prototypes and to begin to gain traction in the marketplace. Follow-on funding - Beyond the seed round, Domi has well established connections with the local investment community. Local investors can become angels and/or co-invest with others across the nation. As companies advance, Domi can connect them with national venture firms that make multi-million dollar investments. Facilities - Initially, Domi will work virtually with local companies until space has been secured. The space will be a hybrid incubation/co-working environment. Since Domi is not a traditional incubator, companies can continue to grow within the facility as required. Co-workers will be professionals related to technology industries as either consultants or service providers that can directly help curate startups. Meetups - Inside the facility, virtually or at other locations Domi will connect entrepreneurs with each other to share experiences, knowledge, resources, etc. Technology appropriate meetups for individuals not housed within the space will be held there to further the interaction amongst the Tallahassee technical community. In addition, Hackathons, codefest, and MakerSpace meetings will be held at the space to further the connections amongst the technology community. Staffing - Domi will connect entrepreneurs with potential partners and resources within the technical community.
