CONVICTION IS EVERYWHERE.
WE JUST HAPPEN TO
LEAD WITH IT.
LEAD WITH IT.
With $1B+ in capital over 4 funds, across 30 market-leading technology companies, March accelerates the growth trajectory of later-stage Cloud-based enterprise companies.
March takes concentration risks because we’ve taken the time to develop high conviction. And that’s hard to do that unless you’re 100% committed in a meaningful way. We’d rather pare back the number of deals we do, be patient and diligent to unearth the right ones, then go all in.
March is always additive to any conversation. We have a firm POV, because fences make uncomfortable seats. And we say what we feel, because those who mind don’t matter, and those who matter don’t mind. We’re never the loudest voice, nor will you ever hear “trust me”. Because being a good listener is the smarter way to speak.
March Capital has been an incredible partner supporting Unqork’s rapid growth. They have made real impact not only from their experience in scaling global businesses, but through their network as well. March has provided strong counsel as we build out our board, made introductions to valued partners and invited me tospeak at the Montgomery Summit–one of the best conferences a high-growth CEO can attend.
I have known Jamie for decades. He is a phenomenal networker who opens doors for portfolio companies and that is a major reason I wanted to join FogHorn and work with March Capital. March has been instrumental in helping us build a syndicate of leading global industrial and technology companies to fund the growth of FogHorn. Our differentiated strategy for financing wouldn’t have been possible without their help.
Since investing, March Capital has tremendously contributed to CarTrade’s growth in multiple ways. In addition to being a bouncing board for strategic decisions, they have been a very supportive “Go-to Investor” for some significant acquisitions that we’ve done. Their knowledge and expertise of the India market in particular has been invaluable as well as their ability to help us enter global markets.
March has been particularly sharp in predicting market and technology inflections. They are always right at the cusp of a transition and pick those trends very well. And they are deeply committed: there is no ask, area of help or request that is too big or small for March. They truly want to help in a meaningful way. And that brings a different character to March versus any other VC firm.

We understand building an enduring company is ridiculously hard.
So we’ve designed a platform to accelerate portfolio company success. It’s an integrated, high-impact global system of access, engagement and support: including mentorship, customer acquisition, and doubling-down on future financing support.
March hosts a monthly, virtual series for our community featuring topical issues that impact the Innovation Economy. The series features lively discussion from leading scholars, entrepreneurs, executives and investors.
March was invited to create a video series “Scaling Up: The Race For The Next Digital Platforms” with Forbes’ Editor-at-Large & Futurist, Rich Karlgaard. The result? A lens on the future of public enterprise technology companies, their business models and leaders.
March is an investor in both The Hive and The Fabric, two Silicon Valley co-creation studios co-founded by one of our partners, Sumant Mandal. These studios give us an early look at emerging companies tackling large markets of interest, as well as the opportunity to guide and accelerate growth from the outset.
Through our founding affiliation with The Montgomery Summit (and as presenting partner of the 2021 Summit), March offers our community unparalleled access to one of the world’s Top 5 technology conferences.
An invitation-only event, it gathers entrepreneurs, investors and leading executives to discover the most important innovations in business & technology. From keynote addresses and panel discussions with some of the world’s most well-respected and influential decision-makers to thought provoking roundtables and 1-1 meetings, the Summit community is immersed in two days of cutting-edge ideas and creativity every March.
