Future Ventures Launches $200 Million Venture Capital Fund to Back the Entrepreneurs Who Forge the Future

Founded by Steve Jurvetson and Maryanna Saenko, the new firm benefits
from each of their unique strengths

LOS ALTOS, Calif. & SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Future
Ventures
launched today with an oversubscribed fund of $200 million
to invest in frontier technologies across diverse industries including
machine intelligence, sustainable mobility, the future of food,
computational biology, high-performance computing, aerospace, and more.
Future Ventures is co-founded by Steve Jurvetson and Maryanna Saenko.
Jurvetson is well-known as an early leader in identifying and backing
industry-redefining companies like Tesla, SpaceX, Planet, Nervana,
Mythic, and Memphis Meats. Saenko’s background as a research engineer
and her venture capital experience from prior roles at leading firms
combine to give her insight into technology business growth and a
thoughtful approach to funding audacious ideas. Together, the team has a
top-tier track record investing in startups with $100 billion of
aggregate value creation.

Future Ventures benefits from a uniquely
strong founding team
, with 25 years of venture experience and a deep
vein of technical expertise. They invest in passionate, purpose-driven
entrepreneurs fueled by a long-term mission to change the world for the
better. Their funds have a 15-year term, longer than venture industry
averages. Future Ventures looks for new company ideas that carry an air
of inevitability, without preying on human frailty, and supports the
companies that one day history books will be written about.

“Identifying and supporting the leading new entrepreneurs in
world-changing fields is my core focus at Future Ventures. We’re
interested in ideas, technologies, and products that will be
transformative for generations to come, not just in our lifetime,” said
Steve Jurvetson, Co-Founding Partner, Future Ventures. “Much venture
capital today is put to work seeking quick wins. Yet we believe the
greatest opportunities lie in the technologies that few can imagine and
even fewer can bring to market. This work is fascinating, exhilarating,
and all-consuming – it takes dedication, passion, creativity, and
teamwork. Alongside Maryanna, I’m thrilled to be working at a startup
again myself, putting in the energy that’s required to support the teams
who build our collective future.”

“Brilliant people challenge your thinking and push you to become a
better, smarter, and more engaged version of yourself. Not only have I
found a brilliant partner in Steve, but also in the entrepreneurs that
Future Ventures attracts,” said Maryanna Saenko, Co-Founding Partner,
Future Ventures. “The types of transformative businesses we’re seeking
are ones that require a unique perspective on the part of both investor
and entrepreneur – a longer view of the impact of our work.”

As an early partner to companies in emerging fields, Future Ventures is
a long-term ally, eager to support the true heroes – the entrepreneurs
that forge the Future.
