We’re excited to announce that Rick Segal and JLA Ventures are sponsoring Founders & Funders. We’ve need to raise sponsorship money to help cover the costs of holding the event, basically the ticket price does not fully cover the costs of attendence (read: this is why I’m not in charge of finance). And gracious sponsors like Rick understand the impact an event like Founders & Funders can have on enabling this community.
Rick has led the charge calling for disruption in the venture capital community. Rick has provided detailed documentation on the venture funding process and continues to have “No Harm, No Foul” meetings with entrepreneurs to provide feedback on the idea, the revenue model and the customers. The “30 minute no harm, no foul” meetings are a great way to learn about how a VC thinks about your company, the problem space you’ve chosen and your solution.
JLA Ventures invests in Internet, digital media, e-commerce, communications security, mobile computing, and enterprise software companies. Portfolio candidates typically possess superior technology, a sustainable competitive advantage, and exceptional growth prospects.
Our investments range in size from $500,000 to $10 million, with an initial investment normally being between $2 million and $5 million. As active, multi-stage investors, we provide long-term capital for growth purposes.
