Our investment track record is proof. For over two decades Sigma Partners has invested in over a hundred early stage companies, and our portfolio has consistently outperformed. In 2007, we raised $500 million for Sigma Partners 8, bringing our total capital under management to over $2 billion.

We cater to two constituencies: the founders and management of private companies who have selected us as their venture capital partners and the limited partners who have trusted us with their money. We want to do well by both but founders and management come first. We have learned that the only way to develop a fabulous company is one step at a time. This only happens if the company makes wonderful products or delivers a service that thrills large numbers of customers. If that occurs the founders, management and employees of these companies prosper. It is only then that the investor deserves to be rewarded. It has to happen in that order. There are no shortcuts. <more>
