Event Recap: New York VC Panel & Startups hosted by Rubicon VC

On Tuesday night, Rubicon Venture Capital held a VC panel discussion that was attended by a mix of angels, VCs, and entrepreneurs. Four startups presented:

  • ProSeeder: A customizable financial platform for investment firms to efficiently make transactions.
  • Circa: A mobile news app that provides users with the most up-to-date bite size news.
  • NumberFire: A sports analytics platform that uses mathematical modeling to predict player and team performance.
  • Parrable: A mobile attribution platform to find, engage, and measure consumers across mobile devices.

The VC panel, entirely comprised of Georgetown alums, discussed the recent popularity of micro-investing, and how this is causing a “trickle-up effect”. In fact, 2013 saw the highest amount of seed venture deals since 2009, driven largely by the increase in investments in experimental projects and in pre-revenue startups
