Greylock has announced two new initiatives: Greylock 17, a $1 billion early-stage fund, and Greylock Edge, a program to help founders initiate new companies from idea to early revenue and product market fit.

Greylock 17 is focused on Pre-Seed, Seed, and Series A founders in enterprise and consumer software, with a particular interest in AI-first companies.

Greylock Edge is a more selective program that provides hands-on support to pre-idea, pre-seed, and Seed founders, including access to Greylock's partners, resources, and expertise.

Greylock has a long history of partnering with founders from idea to IPO. Some of their notable investments include Airbnb, AppDynamics, LinkedIn, Meta, Palo Alto Networks, Okta, Pure Storage, Sumo Logic, and Workday. In their last fund, over 80% of their investments were Pre-Seed, Seed, or Series A.

Greylock believes that AI is poised to transform every industry, and they are committed to investing in the next generation of AI-first companies. They are also committed to helping founders succeed at every stage of their journey, from landing the first hires to securing initial customers to workshopping the best story.

What does this mean for founders?

If you are a founder in the early stages of building your company, Greylock 17 and Greylock Edge could be valuable resources. Greylock 17 can provide you with the capital you need to grow your business, and Greylock Edge can provide you with the support and guidance you need to succeed.
