VantagePoint Capital Partners' mission is to fund the transformative companies of the 21st century. Our strategy is clear. Provide cutting-edge technology with the resourceswhatever it takesto commercialize Big Opportunities. And stick with it. It takes time to change the world. But a look at our focus and our companies shows that our strategy is working. Many of our portfolio companies are already leaders in their fields. We expect nothing less.
We have nearly $5 billion of committed capital and since our inception in 1996, we have made substantial investments in Information Technology and Healthcare. We recently made a serious commitment to Asia with teams in Hong Kong and Beijing. Our expertise in these arenas give us a foundation of knowledge that is transferable and complementary to new industries like CleanTech. We were the first large venture capital firm to recognize the opportunity here and have since committed $1 billion for this burgeoning opportunity.
