Silicon Global Online Presents

Ask A VC Anything! (Silicon Heartland series)

October 12, 4-5pm ET

Scott Shane: Managing Director, Comeback Capital

Scott has been making angel investments for nearly two decades and has direct investments in 50 portfolio companies. He is an LP and mentor at three accelerators: Acceleprise, gener8tor, and Iconyc and is a deal flow partner for Right Side Capital Management.

Comeback Capital is an early stage fund investing in high-potential companies outside the traditional hubs. It grew out of Bloomberg Beta's tours of the Rust Belt, which brought more than a dozen venture capital investors from Silicon Valley and New York to the Heartland. The first tour, in 2018, sparked the launch of a $10 million microfund, Comeback Capital. Headed by Case Western University professor Scott Shane, the fund has funneled money into more than forty tech startups, including Flint-based e-scooter and smart-charger Kuhmute. His partners include VC Phil Hagerman of SkyPoint Ventures in Flint.
