Sapphire Ventures is a growth-stage investor in the next-generation of global category leaders in enterprise and consumer technology.
Demonstrated product and market fit with revenue momentum. In practice this generally means:
- You have at least US$5 million to $10 million (or more) in annualized revenue and a record of strong returns on sales and marketing investments.
- You are raising anywhere from an expansion-stage round up to a pre-IPO round.
Investment size of US$5-25 million as part of our initial investment with substantial additional capacity for follow-on investments in later rounds. We prefer to lead the financing rounds in which we initially participate, although we will consider co-investment roles as part of larger fundraises.
Opportunities for Sapphire Ventures to play an ongoing role. We like to take a board role and remain actively involved in the companies we fund.
