This is Lightspeed

The future isn’t built by dreamers. It’s built today, by doers. It’s crafted by people who live on the edge of cultural trends and understand where things are heading. Building tomorrow is the work of many hands and minds, not one person alone. And the future hinges on the support of a partner who understands that. At Lightspeed we believe tomorrow is built today.

Partner Perspectives

We value different perspectives, which means working with people of all ages from various parts of the world, educational and professional backgrounds, and upbringings.

Global Presence

We have global reach, with a presence and access to resources in Silicon Valley, Israel, China and India. Our broad footprint enables our portfolio companies to better understand growth opportunities and expand internationally.

IPOs & Acquisitions

Of more than 350 companies we’ve partnered with since our founding, a third have either IPO’d or been acquired. And we’ve celebrated over 15 of those IPOs in the last decade alone.


We believe women are the earliest adopters of consumer technology. That’s why female-fronted organizations represent over one third of our consumer portfolio.

Scale Faster

Companies that work with Lightspeed are afforded numerous value-added benefits. Through our CIO Forum, founders have access to executive insights and networking opportunities, while our Talent team offers recruiting services and matchmaking expertise. And we support founders and their teams on marketing and communications strategies, helping architect their narrative, from brand ideation to IPO planning.
