    Description:

    Founded in 2015 by Stanford graduates, GoAhead Ventures, a $55 million fund, launched to invest in companies founded at Stanford. Phil Brady and Clancey Stahr, along with third managing partner Takeshi Mori, raised money from Japanese institutions, corporations, and high-net-worth individuals, as well as wealthy individuals and family offices in the U.S. GoAhead will focus on Stanford, but not exclusively. The fund will also invest in Los Angeles-based companies and others in the Bay Area.
