At August Capital, we take Venture Capital personally


For over twenty years, the partners at August Capital have invested in breakthrough startups across the information technology sector. Whether you are revolutionizing wireless data transmission (Atheros) or creating the first search engine for machine data (Splunk) or rethinking subscription commerce (BarkBox), the partners at August are here to help you thrive. And we’re not just about the money. Sure, we’ve got approximately $2 billion dollars under management. But you can get money lots of places. We’re all about helping you succeed.

We know that venture capitalists don’t build companies, entrepreneurs do. But we sure can help.

Need to recruit a great vice president of engineering? We can help. Want to raise your next round of funding? We can help. Ready for your first dozen enterprise customers? We can help. At August Capital, we think that entrepreneurship is a team sport. And we’re here to help!
