Howard Morgan has a strange motto that has guided his investments over more than 25 years of successful entrepreneurial endeavours – “invest early, and invest way too early.”
As president of New York-based Arca Group Inc., the managing partner of First Round Capital, and a seed stage funder in Idealab, Morgan has made a habit of building great companies out of their very earliest forms in startups. Recent success stories out of First Round Capital’s portfolio include GroupMe’s acquisition by Skpe in August, 2011 and Single Platform’s purchase by Constant Contact June 13.
