It’s no secret venture capital is an exclusive and homogeneous group that’s hard for outsiders to crack. Yet VCs and founders don’t build companies — operators do. So why don’t they have a bigger voice to decide which founders get funded and how they’ll be supported?
That’s why we created Operator Collective, a new venture capital fund with a community of ultra-talented operators built right into its DNA. Operator Collective is making venture accessible to exactly the people the ecosystem needs now: leaders from diverse backgrounds with deep experience from building some of today’s most successful companies.
Our limited partners include 100+ respected operators who bring decades of experience growing and running the world’s most admired companies — from Zoom, Stripe, and PagerDuty to Salesforce, Slack, and beyond. They have more than 1500 years of collective operator experience; more than 60 of our LPs have built unicorns, more than 35 have taken their companies public, and more than 80 have steered their companies through acquisitions. The amount of revenue they own and people they lead is staggering.
