Leading Silicon Valley VC Firm in Cybersecurity, Enterprise Software, Consumer and Healthcare Closes Thirteenth Fund to Continue Successful Early-Stage Franchise

MENLO PARK, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–U.S. Venture Partners (USVP), a premier Silicon Valley venture capital firm, announced today the closing of USVP XIII, a $400M fund focused on Series A and B investments. The new fund continues USVP’s successful early-stage investment franchise, building leading companies in cybersecurity, enterprise software, consumer and healthcare.

USVP has led investments in 93 companies that completed initial public offerings and 100 more that were profitably acquired. “Our limited partners count on us to give them exposure to some of the fastest-growing and most-innovative companies in our areas of focus, and we are pleased to continue delivering that with USVP XIII,” said Rick Lewis, General Partner. “We have extended our multi-decade track record of success with exceptionally strong performance in recent years.

USVP’s strategy is to be the lead Series A or B investor in companies based in the U.S. or Israel in four core sectors: cybersecurity, enterprise software, consumer and healthcare. “USVP operates in specific sectors where we have a track record of leadership.

We are proud that so many of those companies have gone on to become the undisputed leaders in their industries and markets.”

The USVP investment team—Dafina Toncheva, Jacques Benkoski, Rick Lewis, Steve Krausz, Casey Tansey, and Jonathan Root—has over 100 years of combined VC investing experience and a 3.5X track record on realizations across USVP’s four most recent fully-invested funds. “The USVP partners have both operating experience and an investment track record in their sectors of focus,” said Casey Tansey, General Partner. “This experience allows the USVP team to be true company-building partners to our management teams.
