How does someone follow an investment homerun such as Nest? For Shasta Ventures, the answer is to raise another fund and continue investing.
Today, the venture capital firm confirmed that it has raised its fourth fund, of $300 million, its largest to date.
This new fund will focus on first and early second rounds, the company told VentureBeat via email. The firm is focusing on connected device technology, software, and consumer businesses.
The firm has previously invested in companies such as Nest, Nextdoor, Spiceworks, Lithium, Zuora, Crittercism, Adometry, Flywheel, Mint, Dollar Shave Club, TaskRabbit, and Whisper, among others. With its previous fund, the firm invested in a total of 26 companies.
