Shoreline Venture Management 


Shoreline Venture Management, LLC, was established in 1998 to manage Shoreline Venture Partner Funds I and II and future funds and has offices in San Francisco and Vancouver, Canada.

Shoreline makes investments in two primary sectors:

  • Enterprise Software: mobile, cloud/application management, big data/data analytics and security
  • Med-tech: diagnostics, healthcare IT and novel therapeutics

Limited partners are high networth individuals, families, family offices and investment groups. We offer these investors access to a top performing fund manager with a seasoned team.  We also give our limited partners the ability to co-invest with the Shoreline funds.

The Shoreline team has invested $80 million in 30 companies, a number of which have established leadership positions in their markets. Our initial investments are primarily in the Seed and Series A rounds and range from $250,000 to $1 million and over the life of a portfolio company could total $8 million across multiple rounds of funding.

The geographic focus of the Fund includes technology centers in western North America from San Diego to Vancouver. Shoreline has a resident Managing Partner in Vancouver who is focused on enterprise software and med-tech opportunities there.

In addition to our venture management backgrounds, the fund's Managing Directors and Venture Partners collectively have well over 150 years of experience working in sectors relevant to Shoreline and in various capacities. These include information technology and software, imaging, diagnostics, mobile applications, drug development, operations, finance, sales and marketing.

Shoreline is focused on selective opportunities in enterprise software and med-tech which address significant opportunities in those sectors. The Shoreline team is proactive and may assist in the establishment and founding of a company around an innovative technology. 

Shoreline supports risk-taking founders and entrepreneurs in growing their companies by not only providing capital, but by working closely with management on a variety of issues including securing adequate follow-on funding, operations, recruiting key management team members, identifying business development opportunities, assisting with internal finance and providing interim operational support.
