Section Partners is a venture capital and private equity firm making late-stage investments in technology companies and providing financing solutions for stock and option holders that is headquartered in Palo Alto, California and was founded in 2016 by Dave Crowder, Amrith Ravi, Mow Wong, and Alli Murdoff.
On February 5, 2019 Section Partners announced raising $74 million for their third venture capital fund. The managing partner and co-founder of Section partners, Dave Crowder made the following statement regarding how the firm plans on using their third fund:
As the venture industry has grown and matured, venture-backed companies have more access to private capital than ever before, and they often choose to build their businesses for many years before pursuing an IPO or sale of the company. As a result, individual stock and option holders face numerous challenges created by the extended period of illiquidity in their sweat equity holdings. Section Partners has developed proprietary financing solutions that offer venture-backed company founders, employees and investors a compelling alternative to a traditional, tax-inefficient secondary sale.
