Why I’m Excited About The New Republic Fund Investing in Parse.ly
As the CEO of a software technology start-up, there are a few big names out there that you look up to as people who have “made it.” The founders and co-founders of the companies that once started out, as you did, but today are household names: Facebook, Google, Apple.
When you’re starting out, you imagine one of those people taking an interest in your company, noticing the hard work and sweat equity you put in as a founder.
So I couldn’t help but feel excited when we announced that The New Republic Fund had chosen Parse.ly as its first investment. The Fund is an investment vehicle that backs early-stage technology companies, predominantly in the digital media space. It has two main goals: the first is to invest in companies that can strategically accelerate The New Republic’s core business; the second is to spur innovation in digital media.
