Karam met Matt at an Extreme Startups pre-Demo Day party at Razor Suleman's condo in 2012. Matt kept referring to his co-founders as "business partners", which Karam remembers sounding odd coming from a 25-year-old first-time CEO (albeit one who sounded like a 55-year-old seasoned executive). We invested in Clearpath’s Series A two years later and haven’t looked back since (other than to regrettably not investing in the Seed round in 2013).
