Impact Venture Capital is a Silicon Valley-based venture capital firm that invests alongside family offices and corporate venture groups into high growth technology startups.

BACKGROUND
After managing the venture portfolio for Oracle, Eric Ball and Jack Crawford spun out to launch Impact Venture Capital in 2016.
Impact Venture Capital differentiates through its strong partnerships with corporate venture groups of the world’s largest companies. Through these partnerships, the innovative VC firm is able to bring additional capital, customers, and credibility to the startups they invest in.
Impact Venture Capital has now co-invested alongside Intel, Baidu, Yamaha, SK Hynix, Kubota, Goldman Sachs and other leading corporations into 17 companies that have raised more than $200M of follow-on investments.
In Impact Venture Capital’s Fund I, 8 companies have already increased in value and one was acquired in March by Thomson Reuters for $125M.
Following a $10M initial close from existing LPs, Impact Venture Capital is now working to identify additional family offices and corporations for its targeted $50M Fund II in 2020.
Impact has made three investments already from Fund II: Syntegra (digital health), ScoreData (predictive analytics), and CapConnect+ (bond issuance platform), and will make more throughout the year.
