Boston is a hub for startup investors—from individual angels to well-endowed venture firms—but some have been especially hot of late. We'll be honoring a number of them at our annual 50 on Fire awards celebration next month.
Who they are: Early-stage venture capital firm that invests in technology startup companies, with specialties in cybersecurity, eSports, data analytics, SMB class software, emerging hardware platforms, and marketplaces.
Why they’re on fire:
- Raised oversubscribed $200 million tech-only fund in less than two months and have already backed 26 companies with that fund
- Launched new identity in June 2015
- Has seen portfolio companies DraftKings, Veracode, Bit9, DataXu, AngelList, Integral Ad Science and Zoopla all become recognized category leaders (Accomplice was a lead original investor in each)
