Founder and managing partner Jeff Clavier launched SoftTech VC in 2004, making the original 20+ investments (our non-traditional ‘Fund I’) as a business angel, investing his own capital, time and experience. As one of the original ‘super angels’ in the valley, Jeff developed SoftTech VC’s implementation of the micro-vc concept which has become so popular.

In 2007, the firm launched SoftTech VC II, a $15M seed fund focusing on the consumer Internet space, aiming at investing in 60+ companies over 3 years. In 2011, $55M SoftTech VC III fund made its debut and closed its 55 investments over the next three years. In 2014, $85M SoftTech VC IV launched to invest in 50+ companies. Firm principals have been involved in over 150 startups as investors, advisors or founders. SoftTech VC has seen 30+ exits, and its companies have raised over $2.0 B in follow-on financing.
