While 2020 was one of the most chaotic years in recent history, in the words of Sun Tzu, the famous Chinese General and philosopher, “in the midst of chaos, there is also opportunity,” and there was tremendous opportunity for the innovation economy to accelerate and thrive. The Greenspring venture platform was able to capitalize on these dynamics based on our investment strategy, our focus and doubling down on what got us here: team, strategy, process, technology and the ability to deliver value outside of capital. We are pleased to share the highlights from a milestone year for Greenspring Associates, with updates and changes happening across the Firm. Join us in looking back on our 20th year as a comprehensive venture capital investment platform with our full 2020 recap here.
