IVP raises $1B fund to usher in the next wave of awesome tech companies

Late-stage venture capital firm Institutional Venture Partners (IVP) has raised a new $1 billion fund, the firm announced today.

IVP doesn’t typically get a ton of coverage, but the firm is responsible for investing in tons of successful companies (over 300), with 90 of them reaching IPOs. Some of its investments include ArcSight, Buddy Media, ComScore, Dropbox, HomeAway, Kayak, LegalZoom, LifeLock, LivingSocial, Marketo, MySQL, Netflix, Shazam, Twitter, and Zynga.

The fund is the firm’s 14th and largest to date. It also brings the cumulative committed capital to $4 billion total. With the new fund, IVP will invest $10 to $100 million in just 10 to 12 companies a year, and continue to focus on three main tech sectors: Internet/ Digital Media, Enterprise IT, and Mobile/Communications.
