Recruit Rockstars 311: 3-Time Founder Turns VC


David Waxman didn’t start a company.
He started three.
And not just any companies.
After graduating with a masters degree from MIT’s Media Lab in 1995, David Co-Founded Firefly (acquired by Microsoft), PeoplePC (acquired by Earthlink), and Spot Runner (changed the way online advertising is created, planned, bought, sold.)
Impressive.
And then, David decided to switch sides and become a Venture Capitalist.
Now he’s Managing Partner of LA-based TenOneTen Ventures, making early-stage investments in data-driven companies.
(Coolest VC name ever … based on LA’s I-10 and I-110 highways)
