Josh Kopelman’s First Round Capital, a VC firm focused on early-stage startups, has seen a number of impressive exits in its first two years of existence, including the sale of Brooklyn-based portfolio company Hot Potato to Facebook in August.
Charlie O’Donnell, First Round’s “Entrepreneur in Residence” is an extremely active presence on the Silicon Alley startup scene and organizes a popular networking breakfast for startups and VCs.
First Round has offices on both coasts and in Philadelphia, home of one of its most succussful exits, the Philly-based Invite Media, which sold to Google in June for $70 million.
Hopefully with O’Donnell’s ear firmly pressed to the ground here in New York, startups will get to share in a good chunk of this round.
