Sapphire Ventures, a Palo Alto, CA-based venture capital firm that invests in early- and growth-stage technology startups and in early-stage venture funds, launched SV Explorer, an online community that enables IT executives from global 2000 companies to identify and engage with emerging solutions across the technology ecosystem.
This web-based platform enables technology executives to access information about venture-backed companies based on a range of search criteria, including technology type, market focus, funding amount, and technology theme so they can make more informed decisions about emerging technologies they should explore. The goal of SV Explorer is to facilitate greater visibility, discovery, and engagement between corporate decision makers and the emerging technologies available that could help solve both current and future business problems.
Start-ups on the platform are drawn from Sapphire’s portfolio, as well as the investments from the dozens of venture firms that Sapphire works with and invests in, enabling corporate IT teams to tap into the collective wisdom of the global venture capital community.
Free to both corporate executives and the emerging technology companies who publish content on the platform, SV Explorer is available now and can be accessed online at https://svexplorer.com/.
