Susa Ventures is a venture capital firm headquartered in San Francisco specializing in seed and early-stage startup investment.[1] Susa invests in defensible companies that leverage data, economies of scale or network effects to create value and achieve longterm success.[2]

Company History[edit]

In 2014, Susa raised its first $25 million fund with a focus on data-driven companies in the health, finance and education fields. Investments from Fund 1 include: Flexport, Lyst, LendUp, Robinhood, Vurb (acquired by Snap Inc.) and Whisper.[3] After growing Fund 1 to 41 portfolio companies, Susa raised a second, $50 million fund, in 2016 to invest in twelve new companies annually. Susa focuses primarily on startups in the San Francisco Bay Area but has investments in Los Angeles, New York City, London and India.[4]


Susa is led by three General Partners: Chad Byers, Leo Polovets and Seth Berman. Founding partner Eva Ho departed shortly before the close of Fund 2 to focus on personal investments in Los Angeles.[5] Born in the Bay Area, Byers held various product and marketing roles at Integrate and Silver Spring Networks before co-founding Susa Ventures in 2013.[6] Prior to Susa, Berman spent nine years at Richemont, a luxury goods holding company. Polovets previously held senior engineering positions at both Google and Factual and was an early engineer at LinkedIn.[7]
