Frequently Asked Questions

At Felicis Ventures we back the world’s iconic companies of today and tomorrow. We have a passion for product and out-of-the-box thinking.

A boutique venture fund, we customize our relationship with each portfolio company in a way that is meaningful and critical for them. In these partnerships with founders we strive to deliver high value help where needed.

Felicis backs founders from diverse backgrounds in their quest to open up frontier markets, such as longevity and engineered foods, and reinvent critical markets such as mental health and insurance.

This is how we invest and work:

1 Prepared Mind

We feel strongly that great investments are a consequence of deep conviction. We do our homework and are vocal when we see the most interesting opportunities.

2 Alignment of Incentives

We are not driven by ownership and do not make investment decisions based solely on potential exit size. At the same time our fund has enough scale to allow us to play a critical role for the companies we back. As our track record indicates, we define success in the same way as our founders.

3 Product Visionaries

The difference between a good product and a great product is one incalculably better than the current alternative. Successful founders have laser sharp focus on true product differentiation, intelligent time and capital allocation. We partner with these product visionaries to achieve their goals.

4 Art of Connections

With every connection and interaction we seek to increase possibilities of success. Our greatest contributions are meaningful connections at critical moments.
