Who We Are
Shasta Ventures is a boutique, early-stage venture firm in Silicon Valley investing its third fund in enterprise and consumer technology start-ups. We play to win and live for the thrill of entrepreneurial adventure and discovery.
What We Invest In
We invest in disruptive approaches to enterprise and consumer technology, including cloud computing, SaaS, enterprise software, consumer services, marketplaces, commerce, mobile and networked devices.
We believe we can have the most positive impact on companies when we start working with them at their earliest stages of growth, so we primarily invest in A and B rounds.
What We Look For
We support bold, creative entrepreneurs who have exceptional instincts and insights into the needs, desires and behaviors of the people who use their products, are focused on delivering end-user nirvana, and are driven to excel.
Incremental change works just fine for evolution, but in order to achieve breakout success, consumer and enterprise tech companies must be revolutionary. We look to partner with high-octane entrepreneurs who push the limits of technology, the market and existing ways of thinking—leaders who thrive on competition, invention and building new industries.
