After a brief hiatus for TechCrunch Disrupt, Ask A VC is back this week with two all-star guests in the investing world. First up we have Freestyle Capital’s Dave Samuel. Later in the week, Redpoint Partner Chris Moore will be joining us in the studio. As you may remember, you can submit questions for our guests either in the comments or here and we’ll ask them during the show.
Samuel is a longtime entrepreneur who has founded a number of companies including Spinner (acquired by AOL for $320 million), Brondell, and Grouper (acquired by Sony for $65 million). While Samuel has been making angel investments for some time now, in 2011 he and his business partner Josh Felser started a formal fund, Freestyle Capital, which makes investments in early-stage startups.
Moore focuses on making investments for Redpoint in consumer internet, online marketing and SaaS companies. He currently serves on the board of directors of 9Flats, BlueKai, eBureau, Extole, Fanhattan, Hark, Inadco and Intent Media. Moore also led Redpoint’s investment in Efficient Frontier (acquired by Adobe), Right Media (acquired by Yahoo), Auditude (acquired by Adobe), and IntoNow (acquired by Yahoo).
