Meritech Capital Partners
Meritech Capital Partners was founded in 1999 in partnership with Accel Partners, Oak Investment Partners, Redpoint Ventures and Worldview Technology Partners. As a late-stage venture capital firm dedicated to building technology companies of lasting value, Meritech seeks to provide efficient access to expansion stage capital for rapidly-growing private companies who are leaders in their sectors. Meritech leverages a broad network of individuals and the network of companies within our portfolio to create strategic and business opportunities for our investments.
Meritech’s strategy is to lead investments in later stage information and medical technology companies from primarily leading early stage venture capital portfolios. Meritech targets investment opportunities in traditional growth companies as well as lead co-investments in corporate buy-outs and spin-offs alongside other technology investors.
Meritech invests in technology companies in the areas of Communications, Software and Services, Enterprise Infrastructure, Semiconductors and Components, Consumer Internet and Media and Medical Devices and Services.
Meritech investments range in size from $5 to $25 million. Typically, we invest $5 to $15 million initially and can invest up to $40 million over the life of a company.
