Commonwealth Capital Ventures

Commonwealth Capital Ventures is a leading venture capital firm focused on early and growth stage technology companies.

Our experienced professionals empower management teams to build outstanding growth companies that deliver superior returns to investors. As true partners, we work beside our entrepreneurs with the patience needed to build successful businesses.

With more than $580 million of committed capital under management, the firm’s partners have invested in roughly 140 high-growth companies, many of which are leaders in their respective industry categories. Our limited partners are highly sophisticated venture investors and include leading educational and financial institutions, pension funds, and family offices.

We are aligned with our investors in providing patient capital with a view toward long-term success. Our current $250 million fund closed in early 2007 and is appropriately sized to focus on early stage opportunities and later stage venture growth enterprises.
