General Catalyst

Angel group/VC

Joined Vator on

There’s a simple premise behind the founding of General Catalyst (GC) in 2000: entrepreneurs are best served by those who've been in their shoes. In fact, all of GC’s managing directors are accomplished entrepreneurs in their own right. We’re familiar with the challenges you face. And we thrive on our ability to use our entrepreneurial experience to assist, guide, and nurture entrepreneurs on their journey.

As a venture capital firm focusing on Early Stage and XIR/Growth investments, we're thrilled to encounter and delight in helping exceptional entrepreneurs and innovative companies bring a new product to market or transform an industry. But it’s more than just writing a big check. We're tireless in our business-building and partnership development assistance.

Index Ventures

Many venture firms would be best described as a collection of free agents who pursue their own deals and share offices and overhead with their partners.  They are more mercenary than missionary and will tell you to focus more on the individual partners and less on the partnership.  We hope to have the opportunity to show you how we are different. 

We are true partners who have built our own firm together, brick by brick; the same way you are building your company. When we commit to supporting your company, each and every partner in our firm commits to contributing his or her network, creativity and resources towards achieving your success. We are big believers in the power of teams.

We believe you will want an investor with whom you can build a close, supportive relationship over a number of years, yet who will be bold enough to challenge your thinking and your expectations.  If Index looks like a good fit, we encourage you to learn about us through the stories and news articles on this website.  We invite you to read about the companies we have invested in, and to speak to the entrepreneurs we have partnered with.  Their experience is our best reference.

There are no shortcuts to building revolutionary companies, but our background, network and capital can help smooth the path.

We are looking for dedicated entrepreneurs who have the foresight and personal fortitude to take their ideas and make them happen. In a big way. Passion and conviction required, but also a grounded sense of the realities inherent in starting and building a world-class company. We like entrepreneurs who can cut against the grain.
