Biography

Benchmark investments range in size from as little as $100,000 to as much as $10 or $15 million. Typically, we invest $3 to $5 million initially and expect to invest $5 to $15 million over the life of a company. The firm’s strategy is to be the first investor in technology-driven companies that seek to create new markets and have significant growth potential. The firm focuses on early-stage investing primarily in the USA and Israel.

Benchmark primarily invests in technology-driven companies in the areas of enterprise software and services, communications & security, semiconductors, mobile computing, consumer services and financial services. We have recently entered into the clean technology sector where we are interested in emerging technologies around energy generation, energy saving and building efficiency. 

Within the clean technology and green market segment we have investments in Nanosolar (solar), Zipcar (transportation), and Jamba Juice (lifestyle natural products).
