Omphalos Venture Partners, LLC

"  ... Without the element of uncertainty, the bringing off of even, the greatest business triumph would be dull, routine, and eminently unsatisfying."                          J. Paul Getty
     Founded in 2010, Omphalos Venture Partners is a venture capital firm that specializes in investing in early stage and emerging growth companies. We provide seed, private equity and debt funding for entrepreneurs that are building new businesses from the ground up. 
    We recognize that early stage companies and their management teams will face many obstacles along the path to success, and much of our time is focused on partnering with entrepreneurs to help them capitalize on their opportunities. Entrepreneurs appreciate our collaborative and straightforward style, reliability, responsiveness and ....  patience.      [we have stood in your shoes]
  We are asked all the time by tech-savvy entrepreneurs  ..... is Minnesota a good place to start a business?  
 Our response:  Minnesota is a GREAT  place to start a business. Virtual Radiologic Consultants (NASDAQ:VRAD) went from the kitchen table concept to over $100M in annual revenue, with a $500M market cap on the NASDAQ in 58 months. It became the worlds largest tele medicine company - almost all  talent including technical, start up capital and infrastructure was sourced within a 20 mile radius of our Eden Prairie, MN Headquarters. VRAD is only 1 of many such examples in Minnesota.  ADD to that the MN Angel Tax Credit, we believe it is one of the best such programs in the country , well  - that is just  ICING ON THE CAKE.
