Menlo Ventures provides capital for multistage consumer, enterprise and life sciences technology companies. Since 1976, the firm’s marketdriven analysis has led to the identification of opportunities and successful investments in innovative markets. Notable areas of investment include Marketplaces (Uber, Rover.com, Breather, Poshmark); ConsumerServices (Machine Zone, Tumblr, Betterment, Roku, Siri); Smart Cloud Infrastructure (Dropcam, 3Par, Avi Networks, Avere Systems, eero); SaaS (Carta, ScoutRFP, Qualia, Indio, Everlaw); Fintech (Betterment, Bluevine, Chime); Cybersecurity (Cavium, IronPort, BitSight, vArmour, Dedrone); and Life Sciences Technology (Synthego, Cofactor Genomics, Recursion Pharmaceuticals, 3T Biosciences). Menlo’s portfolio includes more than 70 public companies, and more than 100 mergers and acquisitions, with $5 billion under management. The firm is currently investing in Menlo Ventures XV, a $500 million earlystage fund, as well as its $500 million Inflection Fund, which targets earlygrowth investments. Our team believes in playing an active role at any stage of a company’s development. We typically invest up to $20 million in our main fund, and continue to support subsequent rounds. For later stage opportunities, we have the capacity to invest more than $30 million, focusing on capital efficient models with the potential to disrupt huge markets.
