Tag: Venture capital

Texas’ leading early-stage tech VC, LiveOak Venture Partners, announced this morning that it has closed the largest tech VC fund in recent TX history. As its inaugural fund, the all-senior VC team is aiming to close the disparity between capital availability and level of entrepreneurship in the nation’s second largest tech employment and innovation market.

The firm’s founding partners have a collective 40 years of experience, have created more than $1.5 billion of enterprise value and hail from Austin Ventures – breaking away to focus on one of TX richest resources, early stage tech startups. They are now seeking to create opportunity for TX and Silicon Valley investors by bridging the resource gap between the two.

Here’s a sample of some of the early morning coverage with even more still anticipated. Congratulations to Consort Partners’ newest client and the team!

swoopoBeen thinking about getting your hands on that brand-spanking new Nintendo DSi that’s shipping this weekend ?  Or how about replacing that fridge that keeps fritzing?  Is it time to get a new bling watch?  If you’ve got the patience and smarts to do a bit of homework and build your strategy, you could well land an incredible deal on brand-name, brand-new consumer goods at an average of 65% off MSRP at Swoopo.  And while you score on Swoopo, Swoopo has scored funding with venerable August Capital, the venture capital firm behind such behemoths as Microsoft, Intuit, Seagate, Sun and Symantec.
