Boldstart Ventures leverages unicorn successes to bring in $230m for biggest fundraise yet


Boldstart Ventures has raised more than $230m across a pair of new funds as it looks to continue its laser focus on enterprise, infrastructure and SaaS investments.

The venture capital house has closed its biggest-ever flagship fund, Boldstart V, on $155m, and raised another $75m for its second opportunity fund.

Boldstart picked up $112m for its fourth flagship venture capital vehicle and $45m for its Boldstart Opportunity I fund in 2019.

The firm looks to lead or co-lead rounds at formation and pre-product stages, at $250,000 to $4m, with the ability to invest up to $15m in life of a company.

Boldstart has led first rounds in unicorns including Snyk, BigID and Kustomer, with other early investments including Superhuman, Front and Security Scorecard.

The firm has gone from strength to strength in terms of fundraising, having raised about $1m for its debut fund in 2010, $17m for its second fund in 2014 and $47m for Fund III a year later.
