Strategy Session: Vertex US On Early Stage Investing
Vertex US is taking a unique approach to early-stage investments by investing early and often first. The Palo Alto-based firm is now investing from its second fund, the $150 million Vertex US Fund II, in enterprise tech investments. We spoke with Vertex’s General Partner Jonathan Heiliger and Partner Sandeep Bhadra about the firm’s friendly approach to investing. We might do seven or eight Series A and seven or eight seed investments. Even in seed investments, we spend time with founders and do it with intention.
