Box, Imperva, InsideSales, Intersect ENT, and Trunk Club all have become globally-recognized leaders in their markets. Our results are not just on paper; in fact, USVP has distributed over one billion dollars to its limited partners during this same five year period. Our team has achieved these results by recognizing promising entrepreneurs early in their careers and investing in companies early in their development. We have been fortunate that many have gone on to become the undisputed leaders in their industries and markets” said Steve Krausz, General Partner.
