We continue to run Foundation Capital with this entrepreneurial spirit, because our true expertise is the understanding, the perspective, and the enthusiasm we bring to helping promising companies in their formative stages.
We are, quite simply, a venture capital firm where the venture matters more than the capital. Where purpose, and hard work, count.
