Venture Capital

Dragon Global backs entrepreneurs who are building disruptive, innovative and market transforming consumer and enterprise software companies.

We invest in companies that define new markets, including ArcSight (acquired by Hewlett Packard (NYSE: HPQ)), Dick’s Sporting Goods (Nasdaq: DKS), Facebook (Nasdaq: FB), Jet.com, Overture (acquired by Yahoo! (NASDAQ: YHOO)), Twitter (Nasdaq: TWTR), Uber Technologies and Ulta Salon, Cosmetics and Fragrance (NASDAQ: ULTA).

Our venture capital practice is focused on Internet and technology investments across six market sectors poised for significant growth: social networking, eCommerce, mobile, entertainment media, mobility, and cloud / software solutions.

While we are stage-agnostic and will consider both minority and control investment opportunities at any point during a company’s lifecycle, the majority of our activity is focused on late-stage growth equity and early-stage control.

While we are stage-agnostic and will consider both minority and control investment opportunities at any point during a company’s lifecycle, the majority of our activity is focused on late-stage growth equity and early-stage control.

Growth Equity

Our growth equity funds focus on late stage, minority investments in rapidly-growing, transformational technology companies.

Our focus on later-stage investments set us apart and allows us to concentrate on proven businesses that have demonstrated a high likelihood of sustained, long-term success. Our current and prior late-stage growth equity investments include Facebook, Twitter, Zynga, Uber Technologies, Earthlink, Overture, and Ulta Salon, Cosmetics and Fragrance.

Early-Stage Control

Our early-stage control investment activity is focused on young, emerging companies in the consumer Internet space that are looking to team-up with one strategic and financial partner that will fully enable them to reach their next level of growth and evolution.

We seek to take controlling, majority ownership stakes, which permits us to fully leverage the broad experience of our Operating Partners and the unique access to our extensive network of advisors.

Working in close partnership with our Operating Partners, our company’s management teams are empowered to pursue more aggressive growth strategies, including strategic acquisitions and alliances which enable our portfolio companies to achieve higher levels of valuation than they otherwise may have achieved on a stand-alone basis.

Seed

Our seed investments are focused on discovering and investing in some of the future’s most promising businesses before most conventional venture capital firms are ready to invest. While our seed investments generally represent much smaller, minority-stake investments than our early-stage control investments, we still prefer a high-touch, hands-on approach to help our seed fund portfolio companies to achieve their fullest potential.

Our current and prior seed investments include Casa Dragones, Inside Hook, Jet.com, Host Committee and Treat House.
