The American venture capital firm is known to help daring founders build legendary companies, from idea to IPO and beyond. Ravishankar’s role is to advise on both technology as well as non-technology investments.

In partnering with Sequoia, companies benefit from 48 years of tribal knowledge from working with founders like Steve Jobs, Larry Ellison, Larry Page, Jan Koum, Brian Chesky, Drew Houston, Adi Tatarko, Julia Hartz, and Jack Dorsey. The firm which is one of the leading VCs in the world has previously backed companies like AppleGoogleOracleYouTubeInstagram, and many others.

Sequoia also made Middle East investment debut with $33 million investment in Saudi fintech Lean Technologies, where Sequoia’s first investment was in a Cairo-based digital banking app Telda.

In aggregate, Sequoia-backed companies account for more than 25% of NASDAQ’s total value. From the beginning, the vast majority of money Sequoia invests has been on behalf of non-profits and schools like the Ford Foundation, Mayo Clinic, and MIT, where founders’ accomplishments make a meaningful difference.
