It invests anywhere between $200,000 to $2 million. Reena Jadhav sat down with Jed Katz, co-founder and partner, at Splash LA 2011.
Jed's team focuses on a lot of different areas in which technology can advance and improve lives in healthcare, commerce and media. He's also interested in companies collecting data and providing analytics around that.
If you want to contact Jed about your idea, be sure to be (in his words): Concise, clear and explain how you'll go after something big and sustain your defensibility.
