TechForward gives customers the flexibility to upgrade their computers and electronics more affordably, easily, and responsibly. Our Guaranteed Buyback® product takes the uncertainty out of upgrading by guaranteeing future trade-in values for devices at the point and time of sale, by making the trade-in process easy, and by reusing or recycling returned devices. TechForward was the first to market in 2006 with this innovative product for consumer electronics. TechForward, Inc. is a privately-held company based in Los Angeles.
New Enterprise Associates, Inc. has been helping to build great companies for more than 30 years. Our committed capital has grown to $11 billion and we've funded more than 650 companies in the Information Technology, Energy Technology and Healthcare sectors.
Remaining nimble as we've grown - with more than 65 investment professionals working out of our offices in the US, India, and China and investing across the globe - NEA is the entrepreneur's venture capital firm, consistently ranking among the top firms in portfolio IPOs each year. Since its founding, the firm has backed more than 165 companies that have gone public and invested in more than 255 companies that have been successfully merged or acquired - more liquidity events than any other venture capital firm.
First Round Capital is the most active seed-stage venture firm in the country - and collectively our partners have helped fund and start over 200 companies, so there's not much we haven't seen before. We believe in collective teamwork: each portfolio company gets the support of the entire First Round Capital family, not just one board member.
We're an early-stage fund, so entrepreneurs rely on us to help them raise their next round of capital. We've been pretty good at it too: Our $20 million in total initial investments (in those companies that have been in the portfolio for over a year) has been followed by $850 million in financing from later-stage venture firms - a roughly 36-1 ratio.
