The SVA story
SV Angel grew out of my personal style of investing — hyper-engaged, founder-focused, and community-oriented. Codifying that strategy has helped SVA build some of the most iconic companies of our time. Over years of investing, the team has grown around our willingness to roll up our sleeves and assist founders when things get tough. Across our work with Google, Twitter, Meta, Airbnb, Coinbase, Stripe, Pinterest and more, we’ve seen everything that can go wrong — and right — in company-building, and we share that experience to help founders when it matters most.
Pushing progress over time
We look forward to the next 30 years of SV Angel, supporting you and future generations of founders!
Building a better world
A primary motivator for our work is to shape a more just and equitable society. At SVA, we support causes including racial justice, access to healthcare, and reducing income inequality and gun violence. We support The Giving Pledge, and we helped launch sf.citi to leverage the collective power of the tech sector as a force for civic action in San Francisco. When founders join our network, we strongly encourage them to contribute to the betterment of the world around us.
Our work is never finished
We’re proud of our history, and we’re even more excited about the future. As the pace of change continues to accelerate, we’re tracking each new sector as well as the bright minds leading the charge. Here’s what doesn’t change: we’re here in service of founders, upholding a moral standard in the ecosystem to ensure that technology is a force for good.
