Nathaniel Harding, Cortado Managing Partner, recently shared a new blog post on how Cortado Ventures was started. He shares some of the inspiration for Cortado Ventures along with some of the background information on what led to its formation. Harding closes with telling how he built what is now one of the most active venture capital funds in the Midwest.

“As we approached the one-year anniversary of that ill-fated Thunder game on March 11, Cortado hit the $20M hard cap. None of us could have imagined how quickly this came together, or how well the story and vision would resonate with stakeholders. The support means that we are able to focus on what we do best: source, validate, invest in and support early stage technology companies in our areas of expertise,” said Harding.
