Millennium Technology Value Partners, based in New York city, is a leading investment firm providing growth capital to an impressive list of global technology companies and its shareholders. In 2013, Millennium was among AlwaysOn Network’s Top 25 Venture Capital firms. The VC firms included in the highly sought-after list were selected based on the total number and dollar amounts of successful Mergers & Acquisitions (M&A) and Initial Public Offering (IPO) deals from their portfolio companies in 2013.
Established in 2002, Millennium is led by co-founders and managing partners Daniel Burstein and Samuel Schwerin. Both Burstein and Schwerin, along with partner Max Chee, are a part of the prestigious 2014 “VC 100” list compiled by the AlwaysOn Network in partnership with Morgan Stanley, a global financial services corporation.
With 20 IPOs and acquisitions under its belt, Millennium's portfolio comprises only the creme de la creme of high-growth industry frontrunners with the likes of Twitter (social media titan with over 271 million active users, valued at $25B after its 2013 IPO), Facebook (currently valued at $200B), Lookout (a mobile security leader, closed a $150 million financing round earlier this month) and Alibaba (the largest online marketplace in China, about to embark on what could potentially be the world’s largest IPO at over $24B).
