    Union Grove Venture Partners is a venture capital firm specializing in later stage investments. Union Grove was formed by a team active with Morgan Creek, which spun out into an independent management company. It will raise its next two funds under the Morgan Creek brand, including a new vehicle that secured a $100 million cornerstone commitment (in 2014) from a public pension system in Illinois. The group also will continue to manage its existing portfolio of limited partner stakes in venture capital firms. The team has over 75 years of combined investing and operational experience in venture, investment banking, and public equity, and has successfully invested in over 60 venture-backed companies.
