Venture Right: Our Guiding Philosophy
Great venture capital investing requires the ability to see opportunity where others see challenge. Company builders, market experts and excellent board members are words that describe venture done “right.” These are words that describe Menlo Ventures.
How do we know? We asked our entrepreneurs, limited partners and many others in our ecosystem what makes us stand out. They told us it’s how we work with our entrepreneurs. We’re straight shooters. We have their back – even when times get tough.
We are more than partners. We are allies.
Venture investing is all about discovery and partnership, transforming vision into reality.
We know this well. We’ve had decades of successful exits—70 public companies and more than 100 mergers and acquisitions since 1976. Plus, entrepreneurs keep coming back to us—20 CEOs in our current portfolio are serial entrepreneurs. And 90% of our founders were in place at the time of exit. That’s a number that few other firms can match.
When we commit, we go all-in, serving on our companies’ boards with unparalleled dedication and passion. In fact, our board counsel is Menlo’s number one added value, our entrepreneurs tell us. They appreciate our decades of experience: our partners who are engineers, patent holders, company founders, and thought leaders with great connections.
Entrepreneurs have tons of venture capitalists to choose from. They choose Menlo because of how we do business.
