Walden invests in Digital Media and Cloud Services, industries where the Partners have passion, experience and insight.  Both of these industries are in the midst of dramatic, multi-billion dollar, power shifts that will last for many years to come. While these segments seem "hot" today, the shift to internet distribution of both media and computing resources is still at an early stage.  We are seeking companies whose innovation will bring joy and value to users as well as to our investors.
