Canaan Partners is a global venture capital firm that invests in people with visionary ideas. The kind that not only result in new and valuable technology, but game-changing healthcare startups as well.

We were early investors in some of the world's leading technology companies, including PrimeSense, SuccessFactors and Lending Club and healthcare stars like Cerexa, Chimerix and Advanced BioHealing.

All of which makes one thing perfectly clear. When people are your priority, good things happen.
