Where are we?

Dundee Venture Capital is located in the Mastercraft Building on North 13th St. in Omaha. Built in 1925 as a furniture manufacturing plant, the Mastercraft is a 140,000 sq. ft. building now home to dozens of startups. It has fast become the hub of entrepreneurial activity. Moving here was a no-brainer for us. The atmosphere and excitement is here every day and we wanted to be a part of it.

Why Omaha?

There is a humble honesty and work ethic baked into the culture here. People value determination and hard work, they are quietly confident and thrive in an underdog role. There is an expanding network of young and vibrant people that see the opportunity to create something new. We have to say it’s affordable to live here and lack of congestion is definitely a selling point.
