The story of our investment in Allocadia is part and parcel of our desire to foster an inspiring and vibrant community. We received a last minute introduction to Co-Founder Kristine, and made time to grab a quick coffee while on our way to hear a pitch from another company. We were immediately taken with the conviction in Kristine and Katherine's entrepreneurial journey — they had lived the problem they set out to solve, quit their jobs, built a product and attracted some major customers.
Initially, they didn't want to raise venture capital, but soon realized we weren't going to stop pursuing them until they partnered with us. Ultimately, we passed on investing in the other company, and have had the great opportunity to support Allocadia's path as they transform media.
