Proven investors amplified by our CEO Partner model

The firm was launched by three senior investors who have worked together for almost 20 years. They’ve backed a variety of industry-leading companies, including Teladoc (NASDAQ: TDOC), Peloton (NASDAQ: PTON), ServiceMax (acquired by GE), Applause (acquired by Vista Equity Partners), SocialTables (acquired by Cvent), Taulia (acquired by SAP), and Venafi (acquired by Thoma Bravo)

Within this established strategy, Harmonic has now deeply integrated a select group of highly-accomplished, previously venture-backed CEOs. These CEO Partners are universally-respected operators and broadly-networked sector experts that have generated over $10B in exits.

We offer expansion-stage management teams a unique value proposition: an experienced lead investor, along with a recent, relevant, energized, and focused world class operator on their Board at the exact stage where this insight and engagement can have the most impact.
