Focus Ventures, located in Palo Alto, California, was founded in
1997 and currently has over $830 million under management.
Focus Ventures invests in privately held, expansion stage technology
companies that have previously received backing from a leading early
stage venture capital firm. We seek communications and software
companies that have completed initial product development and have
begun the marketing of their products and/or services. Most of the
technical risk is behind them, and they are seeking additional
capital to further expand their sales and marketing efforts.

Our investments are typically in the $3-8 million range, although

serve as the lead investor in approximately three-quarters of the
rounds in which we participate.
