Bio FirstMark Capital is committed to partnering with leading technology innovators who share our passion for making an impact by building exceptional, world-changing businesses. With nearly $2 billion in capital commitments, FirstMark Capital has decades of real-world experience and leadership in core technology markets. Our team is comprised of investment and operations professionals who work closely with entrepreneurial visionaries and their management teams. We partner early in our companies’ lifecycles — frequently as the first institutional investor – to collaborate early and often with our entrepreneurs. Based in New York City, you'll find us at the forefront of the most complex and rapidly evolving industries, among them media, advertising, IT, financial services, video gaming, and retail. In addition to our traditional early stage investing, our FirstSteps seed program is designed for early stage technology companies seeking investments of $50K-$1MM. We prefer companies to be based in the New York City area, but will consider opportunities outside the region as well. Because we encourage our seed companies to surround themselves with a strong network of advisors, we frequently invest seed capital alongside angel investors or other institutional seed investors. Current active investment portfolio of 40+ companies including: SecondMarket, Riot Games, Lumos Labs, Conductor, Clickable, Dovetail Insurance, IMImobile, Boomi, amongst others. Select historical investments include: Netgear, Inc. (NASDAQ: NTGR); First Advantage Corp. (NASDAQ: FADV) acquired by First American (NYSE:FAF); StubHub, Inc (Acquired by eBay, Inc.); Netegrity, Inc. (Acquired by CA Inc); Flarion, Inc. (Acquired by Qualcomm, Inc.); OutlookSoft Inc. (Acquired by SAP AG); Vallent (Acquired by IBM); and Navic (Acquired by Microsoft).
