Sapphire Ventures LogoSapphire Ventures is a venture capital firm with more than $5.7 billion under management across over 10 countries. They invest in growth stage companies, leading financing rounds in the $10 – $50 million range, with a strong focus on next-gen enterprise & consumer tech.

Since splitting from parent company SAP in 2011, they have invested in over 120 companies including 20+ IPOs & 35+ M&A exits.

On February 4, Sapphire Ventures announced a $1.7 billion raise across multiple funds which will be used to ramp up their investments in Series B through IPO enterprise-tech companies in the U.S., Europe, & Israel.

Notable proptech investments include DocuSign, Side, and Reonomy. Also a backer of iconic companies such as Linkedin and FitBit.

What we like: Leading the charge is Paul Levine, a seasoned real estate operator with industry connections and knowledge. He served as COO at Trulia and then as President after the Zillow Group acquisition.
