FirstMark Capital Leads $6 M. Series B for OpenGamma

opengamma device FirstMark Capital Leads $6 M. Series B for OpenGammaToday, New York venture capital makes its way across the pond, as FirstMark Capital leads a $6 million series B equity fundraising round for OpenGamma, a London-based financial technology firm that provides users with an open-source analytics and risk-management platform.

FirstMark also netted a board seat in the deal. The firm’s founder and manager Lawrence D. Lenihan is pulling up a chair at OpenGamma’s directors’ table. He joins OpenGamma CEO David Wylie, Chartis Research’s Peyman Mestchian and Bruce Golden, who represents Accel Partners. Accel was the lead investor on the company’s $6 million series A.

Accel, a West Coast powerhouse, recently opened offices in New York, potentially signalling an eastward movement of technology venture dollars. Perhaps the next prime piece of real estate for tech venture capital is over in London.

Princess Olympia of Greece and Denmark 

The only daughter of Pavlos and Marie-Chantal, the Crown Prince and Princess of Greece, has quite the Instagram presence. Her posts include front row shots from NYFW, tacos with friends at La Esquina and soft serve at Cha Cha Matcha, all for her 98,000 followers. The Parsons School of Design student is also quite the jet-setter, spending time in New York, London, Los Angeles and Hong Kong (and that's just in the last month). She pulled the ultimate royal move and was rumored to have been dating her godfather's son, Prince Harry. She is his type: blonde and aristocratic, with a major penchant for hipster, Coachella-worthy ensembles, just like his ex Cressida Bonas. The 20-year-old princess counts Hollywood elite Sofia Richie and fellow royal (and cousin) Talita von Fürstenberg as pals. Unlike other New York City college students who celebrated their birthdays dancing on tables at Greek restaurants in the East Village, Princess Olympia spent hers in Mykonos, despite not speaking a word of Greek. Her mother worked for Andy Warhol before marrying into the royal family. Yes, her whole life is all very Gossip Girl.
