In total, there were 14 exits totaling more than $10 billion in aggregate market value.

Redpoint now manages over $3.3 billion across its end and has made investments in over 350 technology companies. Other notable investments include Zendesk, Sonos, Juniper Networks, Netflix, Path, and Stripe. Read the press release.
