STEVE ANDERSON FOUNDER OF BASELINE VENTURES

Driven by an avid love for effecting change, and my diverse experience from eBay, Microsoft, Kleiner Perkins, Starbucks and Digital Equipment Corporation, I founded Baseline to address the gap between individual investors and institutional venture capitalists.

Baseline Ventures has invested in more than 100 companies, with founders and investors alike exiting profitably from over 30. Most recently, I was fortunate to be included on the 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018 Forbes Midas List, an annual ranking of the best venture capital firms in tech.
