Ben Narasin of Triple Point Capital Joins 13th Founder Showcase Judging Panel

Posted by Amity Sims on 2013-03-21

We are excited to announce the fourth judge to join our Founder Showcase investor panel, Ben Narasin of Triple Point Capital. On Wednesday, March 27th, Ben will join Paul Bragiel (i/o Ventures), Alex Gurevich (Javelin Venture Partners) and Jon Soberg (Blumberg Capital) on stage, as we help launch several early-stage startups to greatness.

Ben Narasin serves as President of Seed Stage Investments and oversees seed funding investment activities at TriplePoint Ventures. Most recently, Mr. Narasin, an entrepreneur since the age of twelve, spent much of the early 2000s acquiring companies in the consumer Internet and e-commerce industries and providing liquidity to shareholders. When not overseeing investment activities, Mr. Narasin manages to be a freelance food and wine writer, a lifelong passion. Mr. Narasin’s works have appeared in numerous publications including San Francisco Chronicle, Wine Enthusiast, Wine News, Health Magazine and various other consumer trade magazines. Mr. Narasin holds a B.A. in Entrepreneurial Studies from Babson College.

According to a company Ben has invested in, "Ben has been an awesome investor. Honest and direct, but also very caring. If you want someone who will tell you the truth and give you good advice, Ben is the person to go to. He's been an entrepreneur before, so he knows what we are going through."

The 13th Founder Showcase is scheduled to take place on March 27th at the Microsoft Campus in Mountain View. In addition to the entertaining pitch competition, guests will hear keynote speakers Chris Dixon (Andreessen Horowitz) and Keith Rabois (Khosla Ventures) share their opinions on the "Future of Funding".
