Venrock was founded as the venture capital arm of the Rockefeller Family and continues a six-decade tradition of funding outstanding entrepreneurs and establishing successful, enduring companies. Venrock was formed in 1969 to build upon the successful investing activities of the Rockefeller Family that began in the late 1930s, when Laurance Rockefeller pioneered early-stage venture financing. Today, having invested more than $1.3 billion into 360 companies over the past 34 years, Venrock is one of the most established venture firms in the United States, with investment returns that place it among a small number of premier organizations that have achieved consistently superior performance.
