    Silicom Ventures is one of the largest organized groups of Angel and venture capital investors in the United States, linking experienced investors with entrepreneurs from around the globe. Based in Silicon Valley, Silicom Ventures investments range from life sciences and medical technology to semiconductors, software and media. The group is comprised of Venture Capital and Angel Investors who are high tech executives in leading Bay Area companies. Since its founding in 1999, Silicom Ventures has invested in more than 30 companies, among them WebAppoint (acquired by Microsoft), InterVideo (second best IPO in 2003), BindKey Technologies (acquired by DuPont Photomasks) and Sparta Systems (acquired by AIG Healthcare Partners, LP). Unlike most Angel investment organizations, Silicom Ventures often invests more frequently than even many traditional venture capital funds, ranging from seed investments to follow-on rounds and M&A rounds. The group's fund was established by Silicom Ventures management to enable additional investment in technology companies in parallel to Silicom members and in the event of a need for follow up investments.
