Over the last six years, we have tried to build First Round Capital as a community of entrepreneurs -- not a collection of companies. We've always tried to find ways for our entrepreneurs to benefit from (and help) each other. We've invested heavily in building this community. We get all our CEO's together at our CEO Summits. We hold portfolio-only conferences for our advertising, e-commerce and entertainment companies. We have active mailing lists for our entrepreneurs to send questions, thoughts and suggestions to each other. We even set up an Exchange Fund where qualified First Round Capital entrepreneurs can contribute a small piece of the stock they own in their company -- and share in the performance of all the other companies in the fund.
Yet, until now this community of innovators was hidden on our website. So I'm super-excited to unveil the new Community section on the First Round Capital site -- a place to see the faces, biographies and Tweets from the remarkable people that make up our community.
