About Ian Sigalow

Posted on .

I started this blog over vacation in 2010.  At that time there were many resources for entrepreneurs to learn about the venture capital business, so my plan was to instead write about market trends through the eyes of an early stage investor.  This has evolved over time to cover my thoughts on a lot of topics, as well as share some stories from my portfolio companies.  I must admit that I also had a second motivation for writing this blog.  Back in 2010 I was five years into a new business called Greycroft and many of my close friends had no idea what I was up to.  I thought this blog could shed some light on that topic.

My Bio

I am a Partner and Co-Founder of Greycroft LLC.  Greycroft is an early stage venture capital fund that is focused on the digital economy.  We cover a large number of technology sectors – everything from mobile applications to web infrastructure.

Prior to Greycroft I was the founder and CEO of StrongData, where I developed smart card technology to cut down on card-not-present fraud.  My friend David Berk took over that business after I joined Alan Patricof in 2006.

Prior to StrongData I was a venture capitalist with a firm called Boston Millennia Partners. While I was at Boston Millennia I worked mostly on photonics, wireless, and software investments.

    I’m contacting you today because I’m interested in purchasing a mention on your blog. I’m interested in permanent mentions through opportunities like guest posts, sponsored posts, mentions within existing content or Youtube mentions (if you have a channel).
    If you have any of these partnership opportunities can you let me know pricing and turnaround time?
    We’ll be launching a project management course, community and team management software within the week so we’re looking to move fairly quickly!
    Really looking forward to hearing back from you!
