Gus Tai, General Partner, Trinity Ventures
Trinity was conceived around one big idea: Partner with the best and brightest entrepreneurs to build world-class organizations. This winning strategy has contributed to the success of dozens of companies over the years.
A focused approach
With many years of experience in each of our investment areas, we bring deep knowledge of these markets and the challenges and opportunities they present.
Accessible, hardworking partners
We strive to be responsive to and available for our CEOs. Trinity partners maintain a lower number of board seats so they can devote more time to fewer companies. As a firm, we work collaboratively and share our collective experience and knowledge with our portfolio companies as they face challenges associated with growth.
Built-in network and value-added resources:
Knowing the right people and finding the best talent and resources is critical to success for young companies. We've developed a wide network of accomplished industry leaders over the years. We also maintain active relations with high-value service providers in recruiting, marketing, and legal and accounting services, and help align these professionals to our portfolio companies when appropriate.
Since its inception in 1986, Trinity Ventures has produced outstanding results for its portfolio companies and its investors. Some of our notable successes include Crescendo (acquired by Cisco), Digital Market (acquired by Agile Software), Extreme Networks (IPO), Forte (IPO), Illustra (acquired by Informix), IntruVert Networks (acquired by Network Associates), KIVA Software (acquired by Netscape), Net Effect Systems (acquired by Ask Jeeves), Network Alchemy (acquired by Nokia), P.F. Chang's (IPO), SciQuest (IPO), Speedera networks (acquired by Akamai Technologies), Starbucks (IPO), Sygate (acquired by Symantec), and Wall Data (IPO).
