Before we kick off 2022, let’s take a quick look at our portfolio milestones. 

Collectively, our companies raised over $130M in 2021. 5 companies exited our portfolio – including Shotzr (acquired by Shutterstock), Cloud Elements (acquired by UIPath), Shapeshift decentralized (more below), our stake in Dizzion was scooped up by LLR Partners and, finally, Digital Ocean went public.
