Visitors are often surprised to see we’re headquartered in San Francisco instead of Palo Alto’s Sand Hill Road with the scores of other VC firms. Our location is symbolic of meaningful differences between us and other firms regarding our relationships with companies, our commitment to science and our network of financial and scientific talent. Remember this, at CMEA, we’re not just handing off assets. We’re building strong relationships with innovators and entrepreneurs. We then package those relationships into investment opportunities for institutions. It’s a triple win. Companies grow. Investors earn a competitive return.
