    Description:

    The Inventures Group typically invests in early-stage, Bay Area companies. Approximately 90% of the firm's investments are alongside the first round of venture capital, however, the firm will occasionally do pre-venture investing, but only as loans which convert to equity in a venture round. The Inventures Group does participate in follow-on financings, but often below their pro-rata share. The firm's preferred technologies are in the messaging and messaging-related areas (such as e-mail) and heavy infrastructure (operating systems, communications software, software-based 'horizontal' services). Inventures typically invests in the $25,000 to $250,000 range. The majority of the firm's investments have pre-money valuations below $5,000,000.
