A clarity of purpose. We founded Merus in 2008 in order to bring a unique ethos to venture investing.

We believe in analytical rigor, deep integrity and radical transparency. All tied together by a strictly non-hierarchical approach to getting the job done. It’s this ‘peer-to-peer’ ethos that not only informs how we manage our firm, but also how we partner with founders. Merus means ‘pure’ in Latin. We believe this undiluted commitment to true partnership allows us to best serve our founding teams.
