    Cedar Investment Management

John Curtius left his role as partner at venture capital firm Tiger Global in October 2022 to start his own fund, Cedar Investment Management. He led roughly 250 deals at Tiger, arranging investments in notable software startups including Databricks, Snyk, Toast, Snowflake, SentinelOne, GitLab, and Kustomer. Cedar, which he plans to launch in mid-2023, will focus on Series A through Series C rounds, Curtius tells Fortune, and draw on his expertise gained from 12 years of investing in B2B software, fintech, and marketplaces. “Software is the best business model in the world,” Curtius says, “and can offer incredibly compelling risk-adjusted return opportunities.” Prior to Cedar and Tiger, Curtius started his investing career with stints at Silver Lake and Elliott Management.
