Shoreline Venture Management
Shoreline Venture Management, LLC, was established in 1998 in the San Francisco Bay Area and manages Shoreline Venture Partner Funds I and II. Shoreline makes seed and early stage investments in two primary sectors:
- Healthcare: Diagnostics, Healthcare IT and Novel Therapeutics
- IT Infrastructure Software
To date, we have helped fund and build 13 companies, a number of which have established leadership positions in their markets. Our initial investments are in seed and Series A rounds and range from $250,000 to $1 million and over the life of a portfolio company could total $3-5 million in multiple rounds.
In addition to our seed and early stage venture management backgrounds, the Shoreline Managing Directors and Venture Partners collectively have over 100 years of senior level experience working in sectors relevant to the Funds’ areas of interest. These include information technology and software, imaging, diagnostics, communications, finance and drug development.
Shoreline is focused on selective opportunities in Healthcare and IT Infrastructure Software which address unmet problems and needs. Our Directors and Venture Partners are proactive and may assist in the establishment and founding of a company around an innovative technology. We particularly enjoy working with our founders to help them focus on important technology development and team building issues while assisting in other more operationally intensive areas.
Shoreline supports risk-taking inventors and entrepreneurs in growing their companies by not only providing capital, but working closely with management on a variety of other issues including securing adequate funding, recruiting key management team members, identifying business development opportunities, assisting with internal finance and providing interim operational support.
