Meet our experts
We have a long history of building noteworthy businesses. When you work with us, you are working with fellow entrepreneurs who have financed and operated enterprises of substantial scale. This means you receive advice and counsel based on our own real-world operating experience and time in the trenches. We have walked miles in your shoes. Let us show you how we can help.
Merit + Heritage
Successful businesses are built on a strong and comprehensive vision. Each day, the name Meritage reminds us not only of what we do, but how we do it.
To start, we work with companies of merit—the people who are doing extraordinary things.
Combine merit with heritage, and we’re reminded that we too are entrepreneurs with decades of experience. And the wine aficionados among us, remind us that the name Meritage also denotes a world class red wine. When you see Meritage on a wine label, you know you’re about to enjoy a fine blend comprised of the very best of its vintage. Take a closer look at what our team brings to the table, and you’ll see: our blend of talents creates a balance of expertise that is unsurpassed in our industry.
Where we've come from
Our story started more than 40 years ago, when our founders came together to manage institutional venture capital and private equity funds. During this time, we have raised in excess of $1 billion in a series of funds, and have helped seven of the companies we’ve invested in achieve valuations of more than $1 billion.
Where we're going
Over the years we learned a thing or two about running successful entrepreneurial ventures. And we’ve honed in on the type of companies we love to work with—companies whose values complement our own. We’re a team of doers, a team of problem solvers intent on doing the right thing. Our passion today is helping entrepreneurs build remarkable organizations through equity and/or expertise.
