Sapphire Ventures

New York, New York
Formerly known as SAP Ventures (the corporate VC division of SAP), Sapphire was launched October of 2014. SAP Ventures spun out of SAP SE (NYSE: SAP) in January 2011, becoming an independent venture firm. Today, Sapphire Ventures maintains a unique affiliation with the business software giant, giving portfolio companies broad exposure to enterprise customers and channel partners. In 2013, Sapphire Ventures raised more than US$900 million in fresh funding -- $650 million for its second growth fund, which invests directly in expansion-stage technology companies, and an additional $250 million to increase its new fund of funds initiative to invest in emerging early-stage venture investors worldwide. Sapphire has $1.4 billion under active management via direct growth investments and an early-stage fund of funds strategy.
