You might think VC is all about money.

For us, it’s about people.

“From seed to venture to explosive growth, we work with entrepreneurs and their companies at every stage, across every sector.”

Other firms invest in deals, Index invests in people. A deal is transactional. Relationships endure, and ours are based on curiosity, thoughtfulness, and deep conviction.

We’re personal.

We were a relatively unknown quantity in 2007. H&D got in early. Opening up their network to us has certainly been beneficial in finding new customers.

We’re long-term.

H&D deeply believed in Confluent and our mission even when there were many skeptics around open source. They’ve been an invaluable, trusted partner to me and our entire team.

We’re global.

We were really interested in global expansion. By starting in Mena & Asia, they bring that international perspective first.

Our conviction runs deep.

H&D were as excited about our mission—to fill every home with music—as we were. We appreciate their long-term orientation and their willingness to get involved and help the company in any way we need.
