Nearly 400 startups have long-term office space in our Silicon Valley headquarters. It is the perfect place to meet likeminded innovators. And, yes, we invest in A LOT of companies. We make seed investments in our accelerator programs, and have a stage-agnostic fund for companies a little further down the line.
