Opus Capital Raising Sixth Fund

Opus Capital, a Menlo Park, Calif.-based VC firm focused on early-stage tech companies, is raising upwards of $175 million for its new fund, according to a regulatory filing.

The fund is officially listed as Opus Capital VI, but is the firm’s second fund since Weiss, Peck & Greer Venture Partners split into two firms (Lightspeed Venture Partners is the other). Opus Capital’s first independent fund closed in 2006 with $280 million. www.opuscapital.com
