At Shasta we:
Focus on people first, believing success will follow.
We boldly support our entrepreneurs, even if it means backing an unpopular belief or direction.
We make long-term commitments to our founders and our companies. We are reliable and transparent creating lasting relationships built on trust.
We are good listeners who take the time to understand each of our entrepreneurs’ unique challenges. We provide thoughtful advice, without trying to dictate or control.
With a keen eye for what makes customer experiences magical, we are uniquely skilled at helping bring products to market.
I liked that they had operating backgrounds. The fact that they'd run businesses and succeeded made me say, "They're going to have a different perspective on what it means to grow."
CEO - Smule
Shasta put a stake in the ground, which not a lot of VCs do. They said, 'We care about how consumers engage with the product.' That, to me, was exactly what I wanted to hear.
Co-Founder - ZEFR
It’s not just our experience that sets us apart. We relate to our entrepreneurs as people, not just as business partners. We act with transparency, respect, and responsiveness.
