Too often VC only scratches the surface. Continually consuming until there’s a basic understanding of everything, and expertise in nothing. Lightspeed takes a different approach.

Depth is our center of gravity. It’s how we build and maintain a mastery that enables unwavering conviction in the companies we back.

Our depth of commitment means rolling up our sleeves to earn our seat at the table. Depth of relationships means authenticity, transparency and trust. And depth of belief means navigating the peaks and valleys together, regardless of how the terrain unfolds.

Complete immersion is the heart of our philosophy on investing and what separates us from speculators and opportunists. Creating together instead of funding from afar. Forging enduring companies with the power of one global team.

Because possibility grows the deeper you go.
