The Commonwealth Story
Commonwealth Capital Ventures was founded in 1995 by a team of experienced venture capital investors. With more than $580 million of committed capital under management, the firm’s partners have invested in roughly 140 high-growth companies, many of which are leaders in their respective industry categories. Our limited partners are highly sophisticated venture investors and include leading educational and financial institutions, pension funds, and family offices. We are aligned with our investors in providing patient capital with a view toward long-term success. Our current $250 million fund closed in early 2007 and is appropriately sized to focus on early stage opportunities and later stage venture growth enterprises.
The term “commonwealth” means “for the common good.” In its institutional form, the term applies to a group of parties allied in furthering the greater good of all members. Commonwealth Capital Ventures chose its name in the spirit of these definitions -- and they form the cornerstone of our investment philosophy. Collaborative, dedicated partnerships with our entrepreneurs and limited partners create mutual success for every contributor.
