Maveron is a consumer-only venture capital firm. Founded in 1998 by Dan Levitan and Howard Schultz, the firm has offices in Seattle and San Francisco. Maveron is a trendspotter in finding enduring brands with potential seeds of greatness and our expertise is in discovering passionate entrepreneurs who are ready to disrupt industries, displace incumbents, and establish market leading consumer businesses. Unlike many VC firms that have turned their backs on investing in consumer businesses, we continue to be bullish on the game-changing opportunities – specifically early-stage technology-enabled products and services in transactional-based businesses, education as well as health and wellness. Our deep understanding of consumer buying habits and our extensive network of consumer-focused business resources and connections are available to entrepreneurs and their teams on an as needed basis to help quickly accelerate their company’s growth.
