Commonfund closes 13th VC fund at USD625m hard cap

Commonfund Capitalhas closed Commonfund Venture Partners XIII (CVP XIII) at its hard cap of USD625 million. The oversubscribed fund had strong participation from existing investors, as well as select new institutional limited partners. Investors in the fund include foundations, endowments, pensions, healthcare systems and family offices.

“We are very appreciative of the continued support from our mission-driven and membership-based investors. The combination of our industry relationships, dedicated focus and access as well as our information advantages should enable us to support the innovation economy and drive returns for our investors,” says Aaron Miller, Managing Director and Head of Venture Capital.

Consistent with its twelve predecessor funds, CVP XIII is expected to deploy the majority of its committed capital to established, early stage global venture capital funds while also directly investing in mid-stage, high growth companies in the information technology, consumer and healthcare sectors. The Fund will opportunistically invest in secondary purchases of funds and companies.
