(February 4, 2020 – Tucson, Arizona) Shot Ventures, a venture capital firm based in Tucson, Arizona, and San Francisco, California, today announced the appointment of Angela DiFuccia as an Operating Partner for its investment funds and portfolio companies. Shot Ventures is known for its focus on digital assets and having provided investor packaging services for the securing of over $320MM in private investment funding since the firm’s formation in 2017.


hile a great deal of the funding in Arizona is sourced locally or as a result of companies like Amazon expanding in Pima County or relocating from out-of-state, Shot Ventures is interested in introducing outside capital and is doing so by bringing greater visibility to local economic development opportunities, which include tech and commercial real estate. To do this effectively, the firm employs growth hacker methodology, market data, and unique financial tools throughout its due diligence. Managing Partner, Dominique Villela, said of the firm’s plans for growth in 2020:

 We are delighted to have Angela join our firm and mobilize commercial real estate for tech when needed. Our advantage has always been our deep knowledge of digital assets and our experience communicating those opportunities to top-tier VCs throughout the country. Some of those opportunities are companies that rely on advanced technical facilities that houses their data and operations. Having Angela’s experience in complex financial modeling will be crucial in growing the volume and type of deals we share and participate in.
