STRATACACHE Capital

Converting Vision to Execution to Opportunity

About Us

Over the past 18 years, STRATACACHE has grown to be the global market leader in retail digital customer engagement backed by the flagship brands STRATACACHE, Scala, RDM and PRN with a solution-focused global integration and operations team second to none.  STRATACACHE is driven by developing the technology that touches consumers in their everyday life while helping customers succeed in growing their business.

We apply the same approach to investing. Motivated by opportunity, STRATACACHE contributes more to the formula than just funds and a monthly meeting. We have a more hands on approach than other venture capitalists, as the funds that are contributed are raised from past successes. It is imperative that we’re investing in the right company and the right opportunity.

We actively invest in multiple sectors that influence the audience at the point-of-decision, pursuing investments between $5 and $500 million USD. Our wide-ranging digital engagement solutions make communications relevant to audiences in sectors including big brands, retail, banking, QSR and gaming customers worldwide.

With 14 acquisitions in the past 18 years, STRATACACHE actively reviews more than 400 opportunities per year in the digital signage, mobile, display, media and digital-out-of-home spaces.
