Bedrock is a venture capital firm formed in late 2017 on a mission to back bold technology companies violating the narrative today that will come to define profound new truths tomorrow. Our first fund is focused primarily on leading Series A and B rounds, and manages over $127 Million.
The firm was founded by Geoff Lewis (former Founders Fund Partner and Lyft Board Director) and Eric Stromberg (founder of Oyster, acquired by Google).
