    Sobrato Capital is the securities investment platform of The Sobrato Organization, comprising investments in public and private securities funds as well as direct investments in high-growth enterprises. The Sobrato Organization is the family office for John Sobrato, one of the leading Real Estate Developers in Silicon Valley, pegged at a nearly $6B net worth by Forbes. For over twenty years, the platform has invested in world-class funds and made opportunistic investments in leading companies based in and outside of Silicon Valley. Originally funded by capital from The Sobrato Organization's (TSO) Real Estate Operations, Sobrato Capital has grown into a substantial portion of the Organization's overall capital base. Sobrato Capital selectively pursues ownership stakes in companies through direct secondary transactions. Private equity investments include allocations to Buyout, Venture/Growth and Distressed/Restructuring funds. Sobrato will also opportunistically make direct and co-investments in high-growth enterprises in and outside of Silicon Valley, generally working in collaboration with its investment fund general partners. TSO's real estate portfolio is comprised of over 7.5 million square feet of office and R&D buildings and 30 multifamily communities.
