Venture Firms worth Following
Below is a list of Venture Firms that I enjoy following.
Foundry is a Boulder, CO based investment group who’s partners are celebrities in the Front Range tech community. I really enjoy and respect the willingness of Foundry to share their investing philosophies including their thoughts on “themes” such as “Glue“. I highly recommend reading Brad Feld’s blog.
Knight’s Bridge Capital Partners
Howard Lindzon is one of the partners in Knight’s Bridge. I was a regular viewer of his Wallstrip podcast before it was sold off, usually watching on my iPhone as I rode the bus to downtown Denver. I have also begun using StockTwits to research companies. Howard has a new book out called The Wallstrip Edge.
Union Square Ventures
Fred Wilson and Andrew Parker are tweeple I enjoy following via twitter and their blogs. Fred is a legend in Tech/VC circles, writes the AVC blog and was an original investor in twitter. One of these days I’ll get to ski with him in Vail. I met another Union Square Venture Partner, Albert Wenger, at the Glue Conference this year in Denver. Albert is a smart, funny guy and I recommend reading his blog called Continuations.
Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers
KPCB is probably the most famous VC firm of all time. Their website lists interesting bios of all their Partners including John Doer, Al Gore, Tom Perkins and others. Read ktinboulder’s review of Valley Boy by Tom Perkins.
Highway 12 Ventures
HW12 is managed by Mark Solon, he does a great job participating in the community by running Rocky Mountain Venture Capital Association. I like following HW12 because of their advocacy and focus on the Rocky Mountain region.
