Tracking the seed and Series A investments of First Round Capital has never been easier.
“We talk to the guys at First Round Capital to see what they’re investing in and companies in their portfolio that might be raising.”
We hear these words surprisingly frequently from early-, mid- and even late-stage VCs.
Perhaps we shouldn’t be surprised. First Round Capital is one of the top early-stage (seed and Series A) investors and so it makes sense that Series A, B and even later-stage investors will want to keep an eye on them.
They’ve had a string of solid exits as the screenshot from CB Insights below highlights and also have a number of unicorn companies in their portfolio.
But not everyone can really be First Round Capital’s BFF (Best Friends Forever) when it comes to dealflow and deal syndication. And here is where data highlights those that FRC actually has a strong relationship with. A quick look at the firm’s Investment Syndicate Dashboard on CB Insights clearly illustrates who they actually favor in terms of deal making and who invests after First Round Capital the most (answer: Shasta Ventures, Kleiner Perkins, Sapphire Venture).
Clearly, tracking First Round Capital’s portfolio is important for other firms, but today, if you’re doing it, it happens off-line and in an inefficient and ad hoc manner.
This is where technology should, could and can be used.
As soon as First Round invests in a Seed or Series A deal, you’ll see it in your feed and if you’d like, you can also have it sent to you via email.
- No more missed deals
- No more hoping to hear about a deal via conversations
- No more deal FOMO
