Procyon (pronounced as pro-see-on) – in Canis Minor the Lesser Dog – actually means “before the dog.” That’s because it rises into the sky shortly before the Dog Star Sirius in Canis Major. Procyon isn’t nearly as glaring as Sirius, but it’s always Sirius’ loyal leading dog. At Procyon Ventures, we see ourselves as the humble server who opens the grand drape for superstar startups and founders who are ready to make a dent in the universe. At Procyon Ventures, we are determined to change the world, just as you are.
We are excited to work with entrepreneurs who share the same vision of solving problems surrounding or through data. Our horizontal theme approach is agnostic to industries, and we believe in using data analytics, algorithm and machine learning to create a new system or improve existing system efficiency. We are also interested in Mobile/IT infrastructure such as data storage, security, transferring and processing which empowers efficiency advancement.
