Late Stage is All We Do (and Honestly All We Know)
We’re not a venture supermarket. We don’t do seed deals one day and dabble in pre-IPO rounds the next. We do one thing, period: invest in the best late stage tech companies in the universe. We have no aspirations of raising billion dollar mega funds (been there, done that) — that’s a whole ‘nother layer of people and process. And it just doesn’t scale.
What you see is what you get. There are no armies of junior people ready to disrupt your business with invasive diligence requests and lengthy committee approvals. If you’re looking for a proctology exam, you’ve come to the wrong place. At Meritech, it’s just six partners – that’s it. Partners do all the work; partners make all the decisions. And we are prompt, transparent, and quick.
What others are saying about us
Meritech was awesome. They don't drink babies’ blood, like most VCs.
Paul and the Meritech team provided value well beyond the balance sheet. They were with us every step of the way, through additional investment capital, driving the business model, scaling the leadership team, dealing with industry challenges, while enabling and empowering management team results. They were core to the successful growth and results of the company!
Having Craig as a board member was immensely valuable personally and professionally. There’s nothing more important than having smart, courageous advisers who speak the truth but are always in your corner.
Imagine the dream investor. He understands technology, loves disruptive companies, and has the entrepreneur’s curious, contrarian mind. He can fund fast growth with big money, provides fantastic input, and isn’t particular about getting a board seat in exchange. He is honest, humble, and funny. His name is Rob Ward and he works for Meritech.
George and the team at Meritech have been amazing investors to work with. Their commitment to entrepreneurs and the company-building process — hiring, financing, scaling, strategy — has proven remarkably valuable. They're uniquely structured to move quickly, place big bets, and be great partners all around.
Mike Gordon is a world class guy working for a world class firm. He pays attention to detail and asks the right questions. If you are an operator, you can appreciate the value add.
Some doubted the investment. You were true believers, and that is what venture investing is all about.
