When we started Signia in 2012, we wanted to build a firm that reflected the type of investors we would have wanted to work within our entrepreneurial careers. It all began with a simple mission that still holds true today: be the most helpful investor an entrepreneur will ever have. As former entrepreneurs (over a dozen companies which we started/ran ourselves), we know that great investors come in many different shapes and forms. We decided that to be great investors we wanted to focus on where we could help the best, which is in the early stages of a company’s lifecycle (seed and Series A). . . . . . . #lastartup #venturecapital #startup #entrepreneur #siliconvalley #angelinvestor #seedfunding #siliconbeach #sanfrancisctech #tech #business #investment #esports #funding #privateequity #technology #emergingtech #seedventures #seriesA #blockchain #VR

Cruise Automation was founded in 2013 in San Francisco, CA, but their roots can be traced back to the work and vision for the future set by our founders years earlier. What began as a passion for solving the most difficult engineering problems transformed into developing the most advanced self-driving technology for the greater good. They entered Y Combinator in 2014 to shape their vision and develop a plan to build vehicles that are completely driverless. In 2016, they teamed up with General Motors to help scale their vision to build the world’s largest fleet of self-driving cars, and we haven’t looked back. Signia Venture Partners was their largest seed investor. . . . . . #slefdrivingtechnology #startup #generalmotors #driverlesscar #startup #entrepreneur #siliconvalley #seedfunding #siliconvalleystartup #tech #investment #vc
