After years as an established player in the Boston and East Coast?technology scene, General Catalyst took its shingle and headed out west to stake a claim in the second California dot-com gold rush of the mid-to-late?aughts of the 21st century.

A few years later, the firm decided to plant another flag back East with the opening of its New York office.

Now firmly entrenched as a bi-coastal player in the U.S. venture market, General Catalyst?has raised a whopping $845 million in fresh capital to deploy around the country.

The money, split between two investment vehicles, General Catalyst Group VIII and General Catalyst Group VIII Supplemental, will basically be invested as one fund, according to a person familiar with the firm's plans.

Over the years, the bi-coastal strategy has paid off for the firm, with investments in East Coast?companies like ClassPass,??Warby Parker, and?Kayak (which was a solid investment and exit); and deals out West in?Snapchat, Airbnb, and The Honest Co.

The new financing also puts General Catalyst Solidly in the billionaire boys' club of big venture capital firms. The firm has $3.7 billion in assets under management.

According to people familiar with the firm, the new $845 million in capital won't change the firm's investment strategy.
