We invest between $500,000 and $3 million initially, and typically co-invest with partners -- including seed, early and late-stage funds, and corporate investors. We always reserve funds for future rounds. Cardinal Venture Capital specializes in three market areas -- wireless communications, Internet infrastructure and enterprise software.
