Another California based venture fund, Bessemer has holding in 347 companies worldwide as of late 2016, with many more investments and acquisitions planned in the coming months. Not surprising considering they’ve been around since horse and buggy were still the standard form of transportation on land next to the railways. They’ve been investing in brick and mortar businesses for over a century now, but also have their money into plenty of modern technologies and healthcare products.
When they invest in you, you get access to their entire company, social network, and all available tools they offer. Bessemer proudly welcomes startups from all areas of the globe and has offices in the United States, China, India, and Israel. Though they don’t have the biggest investor pockets of those at the top of this list, they have one of the most diverse portfolios ranging from companies like Staples, Skype, LinkedIn, Yelp, Pinterest, Twilio, Light, Twitch, SkyBox, 2U, Cerulean, Cornerstone, Dick’s Sporting Goods, eToys, American Federal Bank, Fiverr, Smilebox, Kiran Energy, CelTel, Arris Pharmaceutical, Veritas, and many, many others.
