We put culture at the heart of the deal

We want to work as entrepreneurs for entrepreneurs. Michael Moritz and Mark Miller founded Carlsquare in 2000 and want to keep this company culture. With Susan Blanco and John Cooper they met two like-minded founders, who share identical core values and founding principles.

All 18 partners at Carlsquare focus on investing in long-term partnerships with founders, investors and leadership teams with a personal, hands-on approach and they all believe in cross-border
