Founded in 1986, Trinity Ventures is a venture capital firm. Starting in the mid 1990's, Trinity ventures shifted their investment focus from brands and physical retail to digital media and eCommerce. Their focus grew to include mobile service, on-demand services, social media and Software-as-a-Service.
Trinity takes a collaborative approach to their investments, where they feel personal engagement, mutual respect and goal alignment drive returns for entrepreneurs and investors. Trinity Ventures approaches investments as partnerships with entrepreneurs. They aspire to build the company from inception rather than liquidate investments independent of the company or other stakeholders.
In late 2019, Trinity Ventures had $1.37 billion of committed capital. Trinity Ventures has raised a total of $2.2 billion across nine funds. In July of 2019, Trinity Ventures filed with the SEC for their Trinity Ventures XIII fund. The filing, for $250 million, is the smallest fund since their Fund VI in 1998.
