Over the past two decades, Lightspeed has backed more than 200 companies, many of which have become leaders in their respective industries. We are currently investing out of Lightspeed IX, a $675 million fund focused on early and expansion stage investments in the consumer, enterprise technology and cleantech markets. Our team invests in the U.S. and internationally, with investment professionals and advisors in Silicon Valley, India, Israel, and China with Lightspeed China Partners.
We take a team approach to investing, with two partners dedicated to each portfolio company. The relationship we nurture with each of our entrepreneurs centers on mutual trust, respect and integrity. Building great companies can take a long time, and each of us commits to a set of core beliefs and ethics that stay constant over the long term. As a result, we’re proud that many executives from past portfolio companies have chosen Lightspeed as a lead investor for their subsequent ventures.
