Full Life Cycle VCs are venture capital firms that invest in startups at every stage of the business life cycle. They provide capital and support from the earliest seed rounds all the way through late stage IPO or acquisition. The full life cycle model allows VCs to identify promising startups early and continue investing as they scale. This provides complete funding certainty for founders and allows the VC to maximize returns by increasing equity stakes over time. Large full life cycle VCs include Sequoia Capital, Accel Partners, and Andreessen Horowitz. They have the extensive networks and large funds required to nourish startups from founding through exit. The full life cycle model also fosters strong founder-investor relationships forged over many years and funding rounds. This continuity and trust provide major strategic advantages compared to VCs that just focus on certain stages.
