Creely Discusses Client’s Launch of $10 Million Seed Fund for Technology Startups

02 February 2018 Tampa Bay Business Journal News

Partner Curt Creely is quoted in a Tampa Bay Business Journal article, “Tech pioneer in Tampa takes on his ‘last giveback’ with new $10M seed fund,” about client Jonathan Gordon’s launch of a $10 million seed fund to help technology startups in the Tampa Bay area.

Creely had introduced Gordon, a serial entrepreneur with more than 45 years of experience in the technology industry, to Creely’s wife, Linda Olson, the president of WaVE, a nonprofit organization that services and houses growing startups. Gordon joined the WaVE board of directors in 2012 and agreed last year to raise capital for the WaVE seed fund.

“He brings the knowledge of what venture capitalists, particularly early-stage venture capitalists, look for,” Creely said of Gordon. “He has his finger on the pulse of the investment community.”

Startups need investors who will help guide them and introduce them to new customers, Creely added. “That’s where Jon provides tremendous value, with his deep Rolodex and the people he knows,” he said.
