SILICON VALLEY GROWTH SYNDICATE ANNOUNCES INVESTMENT IN QUIBB.
San Francisco, CA: The Silicon Valley Growth Syndicate (SVG), a seed fund investing in tech-enabled, early-stage companies, announces an investment in San Francisco based company, Quibb. The Founder of Quibb is Sandi MacPherson.
Quibb, a service that helps industry professionals share and discuss the most relevant news items on a daily basis, is growing rapidly and is lead by an experienced entrepreneurial team.
“I noticed that that was how people were using Twitter,” said MacPherson, explaining the genesis of the project. “People were mostly following other professionals they respected, and most people were sharing news relevant to their profession.” Macpherson built a separate platform for these types of interactions that allows for easier targeting for your profession, as well as more structured discussion around those bits of news.
“We like the fact the Quibb mission is to connect professionals over business news and informed commentary — targeting every industry, profession, and geography,” said Russell Lewis, who founded Rhino Linings and built it to an organization with a presence in over 80 countries.
Quibb is the 15th investment made by the Silicon Valley Growth Syndicate. Three successful entrepreneurs, Will Bunker, Russell Lewis and Lee McNutt, founded SVG in 2013. “We feel an intense obligation to our investors to not only uncover, vet and invest in disruptive companies, but coach them up once the investment is made,” said McNutt, who worked in the Office of Privatization in the Reagan White House.
SVG is an investor partnership composed of American and European investors, providing early-stage capital to entrepreneurs with developed business plans, complete products and most importantly, revenue derived from the market place.
