Founder Collective Raises $30M
[[Updated: See editor's note below.]]
Founder Collective, a new seed-stage venture fund in Somerville, MA, has received total investments and commitments of $30 million from limited partner investors, Eric Paley, a general partner of the firm, told Xconomy in an e-mail. Yesterday the firm filed papers with the SEC that show that it has raised $24.4 million out of a planned $50 million in investments, but Paley noted that the group has garnered additional financing committments since the papers were finalized. The firm was founded by Paley—a former senior advisor to IDG Ventures (now Flybridge Capital Partners) and the co-founder and former CEO of Brontes Technologies, which was acquired by 3M—and by David Frankel, the co-founder of The Internet Solution.
