Now with a new venture capital firm called Unusual Ventures, they’re looking to do it again – adding some twists to the VC playbook along the way. Unusual Ventures launched on Tuesday with a debut $160 million fund focusing on seed stage investments primarily in enterprise software and infrastructure. “We are very serious aobut changing the game on the services and infrastructure available at the seed stage,” he says.
