Our company name, Banyan Ventures, originates from the Banyan Tree—one of the largest and oldest living organisms on earth. Like most trees, the Banyan Tree puts down roots, grows a trunk, and then branches out. But in unique fashion, the Banyan Tree’s canopy and lateral branches send down aerial roots which ultimately hit the ground, take root, and grow into new, interconnected trunks. In this way, the Banyan Tree rapidly matures and survives, eventually developing hundreds of separate, sturdy trunks.

Like a Banyan Tree, Banyan Ventures has an intricate canopy of partners, practitioners, and professional relationships that work together to cultivate and grow our portfolio of solid, deep-rooted businesses.
