As founders, our team has built eight companies and we share that hands-on experience with the next generation. As investors, we have been fortunate to partner early with companies now valued at over $80B, including Doordash, Branch, Gusto, and Guardant Health.
Our strong belief in student founders is demonstrated by 49% of our portfolio companies being founded by students.
