Wing, founded by veterans of Accel and Sequoia, rounds up $450 million for its third fund

Wing, an early-stage, Palo Alto, Ca.-based venture firm that was formed in 2013 by veteran VCs Peter Wagner and Gaurav Garg, has closed its third fund with $450 million in capital commitments. That’s substantially larger than the $300 million that the firm raised for its second fund — and it was raised entirely virtually, says Wagner.

What’s so interesting that investors agreed to back Wing through highly uncertain market conditions? A few things, seemingly, beginning with the team itself. Wagner previously spent more than 14 years as a partner with Accel, while Garg was a partner with Sequoia Capital
