Sprout Group

Sprout Group

Founded in 1969, the Sprout Group in NoMad New York raised its first venture fund of $12 million more than 30 years ago. Since then, Sprout has financed more than 350 companies whose combined revenues now exceed $50 billion and has raised nearly $3 billion in committed capital from leading institutional investors and individuals active in the technology industry. Sprout Group has helped to establish such well-known names as Actel, Advanced Micro Devices (AMD), Cephalon, Concur, Corporate Express, mySimon, Pyxis, SDL, Staples, StrataCom, Sunrise Assisted Living, and VeriFone. Sprout IX is capitalized primarily by commitments from large corporate and public sector pension funds, insurance companies, endowments, and other private investors — most of whom have invested in previous Sprout funds. Their roster of limited partners includes AIG, AXA, Brinson Partners, The CommonFund, Equitable Life, and Toronto Dominion Bank, as well as pension funds of BP (ARCO), BellSouth, Stichting, and the states of Michigan, Colorado and Washington. The Sprout Group is a venture capital affiliate of Credit Suisse, a leading technology investment bank.
