Sevin Rosen was founded in 1981 by L.J. Sevin and Ben Rosen, who quickly established a reputation for success. In the past two decades, the firm has assembled a team with deep operating, technology, and venture capital experience. SRF’s impressive track record is, in large measure, based upon its team approach and that team’s extensive experience working together. Since the beginning, SRF’s emphasis on very early stage investments, particularly incubations and seed financings, has demanded that partners work closely with entrepreneurs in the real long term team sport: building companies.
Sigma Partners was founded in 1984 on the principle that people are the essential element of success. That is why Sigma focuses on identifying exceptional entrepreneurs with creative ideas and supporting them in building great companies. Unlike some firms that hire venture capitalists based upon their business school degrees and finance backgrounds, we think it’s much more important to have partners with experience in the trenches starting and running entrepreneurial companies. This first-hand experience allows us to give early-stage companies both tactical and strategic guidance and access to a powerful business network. We work on behalf of our portfolio companies. We know business doesn’t always go as planned, but because we’ve invested in the best and brightest entrepreneurs, together we adapt and create success.
