Expanding our Portfolio: Vulcan Capital Opens Palo Alto Office

11/15/2013

Silicon Valley has become synonymous with the next big tech breakthrough. And with the opening of a new office in Palo Alto in 2013, Vulcan Capital signaled its intent to expand its internet and technology reach.

While investing in technology is nothing new for Paul G. Allen, the presence of Vulcan Capital in Silicon Valley reinforces the investment firm’s commitment to technology-related companies. The office is focused on making investments in the $10-million to $100-million range.

To head up a team charged with investing in the future in a field where you blink and technology has changed, Vulcan Capital brought Abhishek Agrawal onboard as the Palo Alto office’s Managing Director. Abhishek joined Vulcan Capital from General Atlantic, where he was closely involved with investments in the internet and technology sector including Facebook and Gilt Groupe.

 “It is exciting to join a team that is looking to invest in the world’s brightest ideas and companies that are making a transformational change,” said Abhishek when the new office opened. “I am eager to oversee the strategic direction of the firm’s new Palo Alto office and explore new ways to expand Vulcan’s internet and technology growth investments on a global basis.”
