Our Pledge

We aim to make founders and their companies unbreakable, with empathy and trust at the core of how we partner:

1% Founder Development Pledge

We were the first venture firm to commit 1% on top of every first check we write to be used for personalized founder development: executive coaching, therapy, and more. Over 50 founders have leveraged this initiative to scale themselves ahead of their companies.


We vote our shares alongside founders. We believe this creates a foundation of trust that enables the intellectual honesty required for making pivotal (often difficult) business decisions.

Engineering Success

We help founders set up precise telemetry, turn their companies into talent magnets and create high-performing cultures that drive exceptional results. We’ve seen inside over 50 $1B+ companies as investors and operators, giving us a unique vantage point into the behaviors that distinguish outliers.

In terms of recruiting, the wisdom and the introductions Felicis made, it was like a full-court press. It wasn’t just one person, it was the entire firm.

From a founder's perspective, so much trust is involved when you work with an investor. You are really vulnerable to all kinds of things, so trust is the number one aspect to consider when evaluating a potential partner. I was super excited to work with Felicis for the third time. There's no substitute for 10 years of working together.

With Felicis, our time always feels respected. Our interactions are authentic and collaborative, and the team isn’t afraid to roll up their sleeves and get to work for us.
