    Founded 2007, Merus is an early-stage venture capital firm with a typical initial investment size ranging from $500,000 to $2,500,000. Founded by former Google and Microsoft executives, the firm's partners are often a company's first institutional investor and believe in a collaborative approach to business-building. Merus' partners expect to be active investors and portfolio company supporters. Merus Capital announced April 2014 that it closed over $50 million in new commitments across two new funds, Merus Capital II and Merus Capital Opportunity Fund. Merus Capital II follows the success of the firm's first fund, which is marked at a 4.0x net multiple of investment.
