45 years of building Silicon Valley.
Since our founding in 1969, we have championed over 500 entrepreneurs who have created new industries through many cycles of innovation, across market bubbles and market troughs. Over our 45 years of venture capital investing, we have been involved in 113 IPOs and over 150 M&As.
Mayfield’s leadership has been through a planned succession three times over the course of its history, and today we are led by the fourth generation of leadership— a testament to our core culture and philosophy that has endured over time.
