    Mission Ventures currently manages over $500 million which is invested in three funds. All three funds are similar in terms of investment strategy and are focused on early-stage investment opportunities in Information Technology companies including communications, enterprise applications, infrastructure and technology-driven services, and currently does not consider healthcare. The initial investments typically range from $2,000,000 to $10,000,000 with the possibility to provide additional funds for follow-on financings. Mission Ventures currently seeks new investment opportunities for its 3rd fund, MV III, a $210 million venture capital fund formed in September, 2004. Mission focuses on Southern California companies.
