Description

For over twenty years Lightspeed has been the first investor and an early backer of some of the most innovative companies in the world. In service of bold founders with big ideas, we stand behind our companies with high conviction from Seed to Series F and beyond.

Mission

We deliver the most senior operators, industry luminaries and prominent executives in the industry who focus on delivering real impact. We call this platform team Lighthouse. Depth is our center of gravity. It’s how we build and maintain a mastery that enables unwavering conviction in the companies we back.

Our depth of commitment means rolling up our sleeves to earn our seat at the table. Depth of relationships means authenticity, transparency and trust. And depth of belief means navigating the peaks and valleys together, regardless of how the terrain unfolds.

Complete immersion is the heart of our philosophy on investing and what separates us from speculators and opportunists. Creating together instead of funding from afar. Forging enduring companies with the power of one global team.

Because possibility grows the deeper you go.

JUMP CONCLUSION

Lightspeed Venture Partners is expanding, evidenced by appointing two new venture partners for India and Southeast Asia, indicating a broader geographic reach. They recently led a $41 million funding round in Sarvam AI, showcasing active investment in emerging technologies. Additionally, their anticipated gains from the upcoming Rubrik IPO suggest a successful exit strategy and potential financial benefits.

Inspite of the size, Lightspeed is a Best Beauty Funder Fit, and with brands that are looking for international expansion to the emerging asian markets, definitely a must pitch VC.
