Introducing KPCB Edge

What we do

How does Edge invest?

  1. The most founder friendly terms — We are often the first outside capital a founding team may raise. At this stage, it doesn’t make sense to us to speculate about valuations or exits. We believe that conviction at this stage is binary — you either believe in a team or not. We use Edge SAFEs — straightforward, uncapped convertible securities (which we’ve open sourced here). We don’t request information rights, pro rata clauses, or board seats.
  2. 72 Hour SLAs — A founder’s time is expensive, and any spent away from shipping product and selling to customers is, often, time wasted. We aim to be respectful of our founders’ schedules — in general, Edge investment decisions are made within 72 hours of our meetings with founders.
  3. Teams working on emerging areas of technology — While we’re excited to work with exceptional teams working on any problem, we spend the bulk of our time in the following areas:
  • Virtual reality
  • Drones
  • Blockchains
  • Computer vision
  • Digital health
  • Mobile marketplaces
The KPCB Edge partners: Ruby, Anjney, and Roneil
