Our deep involvement at the board level increases the likelihood and scale of the entrepreneurs’ success. We typically act as a lead investor. The majority of Venrock investments are seed or first round, and range from investments of a couple hundred thousand to $10 million or more. Second round investments are considered where there is demonstrated progress toward market leadership. Venrock is interested in opportunities in North America, Israel, and Europe.
