A new friendship is born.
Daniel and Brandon meet in person for the first time in-person at a WeWork in Korea Town, New York. Despite their differences in age, upbringing, and first languages, there was a burning passion to build something meaningful together.
We started as angels.
Following a recent TechCrunch event in Berlin, Brandon & Daniel make the decision to begin angel investing alongside one another. After a few years of company building, the opportunity to help other founders is immensely gratifying.
Crew Capital is born.
In October 2020, UiPath’s Chief Strategy Officer, Brandon Deer and founder/CEO Daniel Dines co-found Crew Capital. At the time, UiPath had crossed $500M in ARR and had nearly 8,000 customers, having raised over $400M from Sequoia, Accel, Coatue, IVP, Madrona, Meritech, Dragoneer, Alkeon, Tiger Global and others. Through the process of scaling UiPath, Brandon & Daniel sharpen their perspectives on how the venture capital model can be improved by creating a new type of VC fund led by active operators.
Crew Capital Fund I is raised.
After launching Crew Capital, Brandon and Daniel raise $50M for their first fund. Later that year, UiPath goes public on the New York Stock Exchange, raising $1.3B and reaching a $40B market capitalization. Crew brings on its first investment partner, Dylan Reider, who joins from one of the top-ranked equity research teams on Wall Street covering the enterprise software sector at Royal Bank of Canada.
