Making Space for Purpose + Profit™

 

Let's Design a Better Future Together

360 Venture Collective is a woman-founded and led venture firm with an intentionally inclusive investment thesis. 

We fund & accelerate pre-seed & seed stage venture scale tech-enabled companies led by historically underestimated founders building in the fin-tech, health-tech, prop-tech, and future of work sectors. Today we focus on funding companies that are registered and based in the United States.

Our team is deeply committed to providing funding, resources, and advisory support to innovative founders that have historically had limited access to venture capital funding.

The Visionary

Kelly O'Connell

Managing Partner

My friends call me "Google." I don't neatly fit in a box. I'm a geek, an athlete, and a coach with a deep love of learning and people. I'm money-motivated and purpose-driven. I've climbed the corporate ladder, helped several startups achieve unicorn status, and assisted many Fortune 500's in avoiding disruption and improving sustainability. I've lived the life of an advocate, executive, and founder. Thrilled to lead and learn as a VC.

My friends call me "Mayor." Community inspires me. I love learning people's stories and helping people achieve goals. Doing "good" drives me. I've served as a marketing leader for Fortune 500 brands, including Pepsi and Microsoft. And I've thrived professionally by embracing my entrepreneurial spirit working, advising, and investing in the real estate sector. Excited to connect.

My friends call me "Techgirl." Technology intriques me. I love building products customers love. My background includes coding, design, and product management. Equally comfortable with Fortune 500's and early-stage startups, I'm never satisfied with the status quo and constantly push myself and others to do better. I'm an entrepreneur, investor, and founder. Let's get our hands dirty.

Fin-Tech

Venture funding for health innovators exceeded 14 billion yet the continuing global crisis of health inequity predicts strong opportunity for this sector. Investing in those bridging the gap. 

Technology optimizes the way people research, rent, buy, sell, manage, and develop property. Data proves this industry will continue to evolve rapidly due to consumer demand and the impact of climate change.

The workforce is shifting at an unprecedented rate. The way we work, collaborate, and set and achieve objectives, is quickly changing. Tools that predict, empower, and enable change adoption are essential.

At the intersection of regulation, market demand, and opportunity tools that empower traditionally underrepresented individuals gain financial clarity and control are positioned to win.
