OS Fund, a Venice, CA-based venture capital firm that invests in entrepreneurs and companies that develop breakthrough discoveries in science to address the most pressing global problems, is raising $250m for OS Fund II.
This raise follows a $100M OS Fund I, which made 28 investments, with 27 receiving follow on investment, four valued at over a billion dollars, and two acquired.
