Our Story

Flying Fish Ventures brings together three partners who have contributed to the Seattle tech scene for over 25 years. Geoff and Frank met while working together at Microsoft, where they worked together on Speech and Natural Language Processing. Later, Frank went on to work as a Director at Amazon. Heather, meanwhile, began her career as a corporate lawyer and went on to become an executive at PhotoDisc and Getty Images.

United by a shared belief in Seattleā€™s tech talent, lack of access to venture capital, and an excitement for AI and Machine Learning, we decided to band together and form Flying Fish Ventures.

Named after the famous and quintessentially Seattle fish throwers at Pike Place Market, we decided to focus on early stage, Pacific Northwest-based, artificial intelligence and machine learning startups.

We believe there is no better place today to build a new technolgy giant than the Pacific Northwest. If you agree and have a big idea, we want to talk.

Aligned with Technical Founders.

Proactive & Engaged

We've seen it all. Well, maybe not ALL, but we've seen -- and solved -- most business problems and challenges. We bring decades of operational and technical experience building great products in established companies and start-ups. We still code. We understand the challenges and the tradeoffs that you will be faced with.

Deeply Connected

Finding the Right Partners

We'll connect you. We know how to build great teams and will help recruit people that will make a difference. We know experts and influencers across the board in Machine Learning, AI, Cloud Infrastructure and everything else a modern business needs. We know customers, funders and potential exit partners.

Direct & Helpful.

Seattle Values, Valley Speed.

We make decisions quickly. We roll up our sleeves and get to work. We get you back to running your business as quickly as possible.
