About Spur Capital

Discover the History of
Spur Capital

Spur Capital was formed in 2001 and the founding team came together over the course of the preceding decade.

Investment Strategy

Spur typically deploys capital across 15 -18 early stage venture managers over 3 to 4 vintage years, along with select direct investments into companies back by our venture managers.. Our funds invest primarily in US based venture relationships and historically have committed roughly 70% of capital to technology focused investments and 30% to life sciences.

Spur Impact

By our conservative estimates, there are roughly 300,000 employees across active portfolio companies – and we believe that the commercialization of innovation leads to wage growth as well as a reliably higher quality of life. 

Although Spur has only funded 3% of all life science venture funds, our portfolio companies have brought a remarkable 119 FDA-approved drugs to market since 2007.
