History

Amplify Partners was founded by Sunil Dhaliwal on 1 Jan 2012. It is based in Menlo Park, California, United States. Its headquarters region is in San Francisco Bay Area, Silicon Valley, West Coast.

Amplify Partners is an early-stage venture capital fund. The fund backs technical entrepreneurs pursuing the Infrastructure 2.0. The fund has made initial investments of $50,000 to $1.5 million in software-driven businesses mostly geared to enterprise IT customers.

The Infrastructure 2.0 provides an integrated and pre-tested environment built on well tested best-of-breed volume components. It allows higher utilization of resources and flexible real-time addition and subtraction of resources without any significant impact on end-user availability or performance.

The Infrastructure 2.0 model allows IT resources to be moved dynamically between physical machines and locations to meet resource balancing and data protection requirements. This movement can be between computing resources managed by an organization (the internal cloud) and computing resources that are managed outside the organization.

Amplify Partners is a venture capital firm focused exclusively on the Infrastructure 2.0 revolution. The firm provides technical founders with early-stage capital.Amplify awards funding of $500,000 to $10m, and has backed roughly 50 companies as of September 2018.
