Event Details

Join us for a lively discussion and Q&A with Micah Rosenbloom, Partner at Founder Collective, a unique New York–based venture firm made up of investors who are all entrepreneurs (including the founders of Flickr, Vimeo, Behance, and others). Founder Collective invests in the first institutional rounds of early stage tech ventures, from robotics to web to b2b software.

Micah has launched three technology ventures, including Handshake.com, Brontes (a dental imaging company spun out of MIT and sold to 3M) and Sample6 (venture backed company funded by Flybridge and Canaan Partners). Micah will share his experiences with starting, scaling, and selling early-stage companies, as well as advice for entrepreneurs looking to attract their seed round of funding.

About the Speakers:

Micah Rosenbloom, Partner, Founder Collective

Micah has spent his career starting and funding tech enterprises. As an entrepreneur, Micah has raised four rounds of venture capital for over $40M in investment for three distinct companies. He is currently a Venture Partner with Founder Collective, leading seed investments out of NYC. Most recently, Micah founded Sample6 Technologies - a Boston-based company building a diagnostic and monitoring platform for harmful bacteria in food and healthcare settings. Before that Micah co-founded Brontes Technologies, which digitized the dental impression with a real-time 3D imaging system, and was based on work done at MIT. Brontes sold to 3M in 2006 and Micah ran the business for 3M for 4 years. Micah's first business was Handshake.com, an enterprise software and consumer web company that sold online scheduling and pricing engines. Micah has a BS from Cornell, and MBA from Harvard Business School.
