August Capital was founded in 1995 by Dave Marquardt and John Johnston. Seasoned veterans of the venture capital industry, Marquardt and Johnston formed August Capital to invest in companies differentiated by technical innovation and entrepreneurial excellence. Today, August Capital's eight investment professionals -- Marquardt, Johnston, Andy Rappaport, David Hornik, Vivek Mehra, Howard Hartenbaum, Eric Carlborg and Tripp Jones-- have more than a century of combined venture and operational experience. Together they manage $1.3 billion and have invested in more than 75 companies across the technology spectrum.
From its inception, August Capital has funded an extraordinary group of entrepreneurs who have built significant, long-term value across the full range of information technologies. The companies that August Capital's partners have backed represent an aggregate market capitalization of well over $250 billion, generate in excess of $75 billion in annual revenue and employ a quarter of a million people around the world. This success is a testament to the entrepreneurs themselves, as well as the fundamental technologies they have created. We are proud to have supported these entrepreneurs and their companies as they have grown and prospered.
