Our Promise to Entrepreneurs
We invest in relationships from inception to iconic.
We know that company building is a marathon, not a sprint. Here’s what it means to partner with the Mayfield team.
We are your partners for life, investing in your success beyond money.
Putting people first is our number one core value. We get that the only relationship that matters is human to human.
We go early and we go deep.
We embrace taking risk as you shape your idea into a company. We partner with pioneers who create trends vs imitators chasing existing trends. We bring domain expertise and our full attention to your business, regardless of check size. We meet you where you are at, starting at $500K for Seed, up to $12M for Series A.
We understand company building is not a straight line.
We are a team of founders backing founders. Our lived experience makes us truly empathetic to your journey and gives us the imagination to invest in the things we might not be able to see today. And as we’ve been through the company building marathon ourselves, we are not surprised by team changes, pivots, PMF and GTM experiments.
We know it takes a team to build a company.
We have one early-stage team and fund so the same team works with you from day zero through iconic. At the founding stage, we partner with angel and seed-stage investors who bring complementary expertise and networks.
We scale with you.
We help you evolve from founder to CEO and partner with proven coaches to guide your journey. We deliver a custom program, the Mayfield Velocity Platform, to accelerate your path from idea to escape velocity. Our network of operators and advisors complement your team and bring expertise that matches your company stage.
