Granite Ventures

We have helped early-stage technology companies build solid foundations for success since 1992, when we began investing as the early-stage venture capital group within Hambrecht & Quist. Granite became an independent firm in 1998, but continues to leverage decades of investment and technology experience to benefit and create value for our portfolio companies. We focus our investments on sectors where our partners have deep domain expertise, broad industry knowledge, and significant investment experience.
