Foundation Capital
We're not investment bankers. We're not obsessed with money. And because of that, we're able to keep our focus where it belongs: on the many different facets of creating and building successful enterprises.

To that effort we bring our own real-world experience at startups, our contacts and a commitment to work at your side to create a company we can all be proud of. We'll see to it that you get access to industry leaders, potential customers, prospective partners, world-class board members and candidates for key management positions. And we'll do all that because great people are what it takes to build great companies. We're here to help build yours.

Focused on Information Technology
Because we invest our expertise as well as our money, we tend to keep our focus trained on the markets we know best:

Enterprise Software & On-Demand Services
Networking, Storage & Telecommunications
Semiconductor & EDA
