Storm Ventures

Storm Ventures is a $600m (TAM) VC firm 100% focused solely on early-stage enterprise investments. We’ve been founders ourselves, of enterprise companies including Airespace (acquired by Cisco) and EchoSign (acquired by Adobe). We’ve had to go without pay as CEOs ourselves to make payroll. We’ve gone from $0 to $100m in ARR and lived all the stages in between. We’ve here to help, and add some strategic capital and insights. And not be in the way when we’re not needed.
