Draper, Fisher and Jurvetson have been investing in all the latest tech trends since the mid 1980s. Like many at the top of this list, they prefer initially seed funding a new startup in need of $1M or more in funds. Then, they’ll navigate through the startup stage with you and will likely commit to more funds as needed if the company continues to grow.
They have nearly 700 investments in 380 companies total, and have been a part of 16 IPOs throughout the years. DFJ operates and invests on all continents. Some of their more high profile investments include Tesla, Twitter, Tumblr, Twilio, Skype, Redfin, Box, Yodle, Solar City, Remitly, AngelList, SugarCRM, Periscope Data, Ping Identity, Tango, and too many others to list. They’ve been at the investing game for a while and have a huge network startup founders can tap into for the continued growth and success of their companies.
