Consumer

At Foundation Capital, we aren't necessarily interested in spotting the next consumer "thing" before the rest of the crowd. Rather, we tend to think hard about the real-life events and real-life needs of consumers everywhere: marriage, childcare, retirement, healthcare, and personal and financial wellness.

Our consumer practice is dedicated to finding innovative technology solutions to life's biggest problems and to transforming large markets like healthcare and financial services through business-model and technology innovation.
