Case Study: SOSV

TwitterLinkedIn

SOSV is a multi-stage venture capital firm that invests through their global accelerator programs with a focus on hardware/connected devices, life sciences, cross-border internet and food innovation. The firm provides support to talented entrepreneurs with more than just capital, but an unparalleled network of engineers, designers, scientists and accountants to foster growth. In 2014, the firm began fund raising for SOSV III, with the goal of expanding the firm’s client base to include outside capital for the first time.
