    Thayer Ventures invests in technology companies that focus on the hospitality industry. This industry, which represents over $10 trillion in annual global economic activity, is thriving with entrepreneurial activity due to the disruptive changes within the sector which began over a decade ago. In October 2009, the four Managing Directors of Thayer Ventures formed the firm's inaugural venture capital fund. Quest Hospitality Ventures Fund I closed on June 30, 2011, and currently has nine portfolio companies, with an additional 1-2 portfolio companies anticipated in 2012.
