Sequoia Capital has been around for close to 50 years now and was founded by Don Valentine. This VC firm likes to fund early stage startups and will consider doing deals with entrepreneurs who have little experience, and who also have nothing more than a good concept for their investors to consider.
Early stage startups can’t go wrong with Sequoia, the original investors in global brands like Apple, Cisco Systems, Oracle, Electronic Arts (EA), and Atari. Don and his investment partners have done deals ranging from $1M to $1.8B throughout the years and have shown their loyalty to the startups they invest in.
They recently made a $1.8B dollar investment in the popular social network, Snapchat in May 2016. Other key investments have included: PressPlay, Fenda, Carousell, ZoomCar, Voonik, Cuemath, ClearTax, HealthKart, LawnGuru, and a massive $550M deal with Go-Jek. The firm offers unlimited mentorship help with each deal they ink.
Fund raised/currently managed: ~$10 billion
Focus industries: Energy, enterprise, financial, health care, internet, mobile.
