Canvas Named #1 "VC Firm to Watch" Midas List

Canvas arrived in 2013 as a spin-out of Morgenthaler Ventures, starting with a $175 million fund focused on early-stage investing in the financial technology (fintech), online marketplace, new enterprise, and digital health sectors. Canvas is managed by three Morgenthaler VCs, Rebecca Lynn (#23), Gary Little, and Gary Morgenthaler, and fourth partner Paul Hsiao (previously with New Enterprise Associates). Following her nomination in 2013 to the Midas Brink List, Lynn came in strong for her first Midas appearance with investments in Lending Club (IPO 2014) along with the still-private Evernote (valued over $1.0 billion) and digital health services provider Practice Fusion. Canvas Venture Fund is a new VC firm – started by a tight-knit team of VC veterans – and given Lynn’s notable showing on the Midas List, is clearly off to an impressive start.
