Omidyar Technology Ventures (“OTV”) is an early stage venture capital firm that partners with entrepreneurs looking to solve big, meaningful problems. We look for founders with unique insights that give them clarity of purpose, courage and conviction enabling them to pursue their vision with a sense of inevitability. We are committed to the success of the entrepreneurs we partner with — the ultimate measure of our success is their success.
Fortune favors entrepreneurs who are obsessed with a vision for transforming markets, and have the insights, drive and courage to make that vision a reality.
We strive to have a well thought out point of view, but always keep an open mind. No one has all the answers, so we focus on asking smart questions.
Being an entrepreneur is among the hardest and most stressful endeavors. We know what a difference it makes to have the right partner on your side.
We believe in being honest and direct and that candor is the bedrock of trust and effective collaboration.
We believe that actions speak louder than words. We focus on doing more and talking less.
Working with entrepreneurs is a privilege and we treat it as such.
