The opportunity at Strawberry Creek Ventures is certainly unique. Their ability to tap the Berkeley alumni network and co-invest with top-tier venture funds with a diversified strategy is truly innovative. We’re excited to be investing in world changing companies led by Cal alums.
J. Terranova
Strawberry Creek Ventures Investor
Strawberry Creek is uniquely positioned to identify and gain access to the best entrepreneurs coming out of UC Berkeley. Together, we ended up creating allocation for FreeWire's oversubscribed round. It was an incredible success. I highly recommend Strawberry Creek and the AV family of funds to both entrepreneurs and investors alike.

We chose Strawberry Creek Ventures as an investor, because of their large and totally unique alumni network, which we will continue to leverage for customer introductions, recruiting and digital outreach as we scale.

Strawberry Creek Ventures has been an extremely supportive investor! I would highly recommend them as being one of the most founder-friendly VC's in Silicon Valley. They are passionate about helping Berkeley founders become successful and this is very evident in everything they do and how they communicate to us. We are so glad to have them back us.

Alumni Ventures makes it simple to leverage not only the alumni strength of my own schools (Berkeley and MIT), but also the alumni of other top-tier institutions within our network like UT-Austin. We highly recommend adding AV to your cap table if you have the opportunity to do so.
Ed King
Founder and CEO, Openprise
Over the past five years, I have watched Strawberry Creek (and Alumni Ventures more generally) carve out a unique and valuable place inside the venture ecosystem. I'm very much looking forward to the next five.
