Committed. Connected. Your Partner.

We don’t believe in the status quo. Neither do you, which is why you’re starting a new company.

We are usually the first institutional investors, but we also make some later stage and seed stage investments. Examples of seed investments that went on to raise additional rounds of venture funding with us include Proofpoint, PunchTab, Rocket Fuel and ZeaChem.

The Mohr Davidow team works best with entrepreneurs who welcome our commitment and involvement as well as our funding, those whose vision and sense of mission is both compelling and pragmatic. We value entrepreneurs who identify impressive market opportunities and are not afraid to go after them. We look for those who inspire and attract other first-class people.

Unparalleled skills and experience

We understand that success is rarely a straight path and that startups must iterate, often many times, to find the formula that works. With this in mind, we contribute an unparalleled set of skills and experience. We know firsthand that your company requires a great deal of time and attention, and that the real work begins after the investment.
