After a brief hiatus for SXSW, Ask A VC is back this week with MkII Ventures’ Ron Palmeri. As you may remember, you can submit questions for our guest either in the comments or here and we’ll ask them during the show.
Over the past few years there’s been a rise of company builders, or “studios,” in the technology and VC world. Palmeri was one of the first participants in this movement while he was a managing director at Minor Ventures. He was responsible for hits like GrandCentral (now Google Voice), OpenDNS and Scout Labs (acquired by Lithium).
Last year, Palmeri debuted his new firm, MkII Ventures, which has developed Prism Skylabs, a cloud service that takes unused images from surveillance videos and turns them into actionable information for store owners. Prism Skylabs is also backed by Andreessen Horowitz, SV Angel, and CrunchFund.
We’ll be talking about why parallel entrepreneurship works, what Palmeri is incubating next and more.
