SOSV is a venture fund managing over $700 million with a portfolio of over 900 startups. It invests an initial $100k to $250k in 150 new startups per year across its industry-leading accelerator programs HAX (hardware), IndieBio (life sciences), Chinaccelerator and MOX (cross-border internet), Food-X (food business), and dlab (blockchain). SOSV then provides $200k to $2 million in follow-on funding in subsequent rounds.

Managing Partner Sean O’Sullivan created the firm in 1995 after the IPO of MapInfo, the startup he co-founded that pioneered street mapping on computers. Today, the firm has eight general partners amongst a 110-person staff across nine locations in the US (SF, NYC), Europe (London, Cork) and Asia (Shanghai, Shenzhen, Taipei, Xi'An, Tokyo). Over its two-decade history, SOSV has a net IRR of over 30%, putting it in the top 10% of VC funds in the world.
