The company invests in both private and public companies, with some of the biggest names Sequoia has invested in include Yahoo, Apple, Google, Linkedin, and YouTube, to name a few.
In March 2020, Sequoia Capital announced that it is opening a fundraiser for about US $7 billion for its latest set of venture capital funds, testing investor appetite for technology start-ups in the US and south-east Asia as a response to the coronavirus market damage.

I have a company I started in India after Covid. It has grown from doing 200k a month to now doing 4,9m a month. I need an angel investor as we can keep up with the demand for product. With right amount of investment we know we can become a 1B monthly revenue company. We have gone to US investors for money. They get incredibly excited when they company and growth. But when the see our financials out of a Bank in India it kills the deal. We do have a US bank. But we cannot put money into from India. We have send money first to India from US and then after the quarter 40% back into US. We are hoping we can find an Investor would be willing to work with us. Willing to give 25% back on loan. 10M would be Idea. We can usually double that amount within 8 weeks.
