Founded in 2004 by the highly respected “Super Angel” investor, Jeff Clavier, this large VC firm specializes in seed funding unique startups in the industries they prefer to work in. On average, they only make around 15 investments a year at around $850,000 each out of their $85M fund IV.

They’re investments include some very interesting startups including Mint, Kongregate, Brightroll, LiveRamp, Milo, Wildfire, Bleacher Report, Gnip, Fitbit, Eventbrite, Sendgrid, Poshmark, Hired, Postmates, Vungle, Shippo and Molekule – to name just a few.
