Breyer Capital is a premier global venture capital and private equity investor focused on catalyzing high-impact entrepreneurs in the United States, China, and India.  Founded by Jim Breyer in 2006, we make long-term, idea-driven strategic investments in our chosen core areas: social media, artificial intelligence, entertainment/media, digital health, data analytics, and financial technologies. We actively partner with a diverse set of companies including early-stage startups building breakthrough technologies, fast growing companies, and established worldwide leading corporations.  Our team enjoys helping to frame strategic investments anchored by the passion of founders and owner/operator teams, the insights of our network of world-class investors, and a conviction that artificial intelligence, machine learning, and virtual reality will transform technology and investment opportunities globally. Technology is an enabler not a replacer.    

We are genuinely committed investment partners.  Our team is passionately dedicated to making a positive impact on the companies where we are part of the team.  We seek out entrepreneurs who have an exceptional track record in both positive and negative market environments as well as a clear history of intellectual and personal leadership.

We are long-term thinkers.  As a result, we have often invested and will often invest in opportunities that go against the prevailing bias.  We push investors and business leaders to continuously test hypotheses and pride ourselves on maintaining openness to experimentation that can lead to long-term breakthrough performance.

We invest in groundbreaking and compelling opportunities, no matter what form they take.  Our primary focus is on early-stage and high growth companies in the U.S., China, and India, but we also invest in:

  • Recapitalizations of closely held private companies
  • Buyouts of divisions or business units of companies in rapidly changing social media, entertainment/media, digital health, and financial technologies that are global at their core
  • Structured equity and debt investments
  • Single or multi-strategy alternative investments

We are students. We learn by listening to our entrepreneurs, fellow investors, and competitors.

"We have historically invested against the prevailing bias and we will continue to do so.”
