Top Investor, Mike Maples Jr., to Talk About Adapting the VC Model for Innovation at the Founder Showcase

Posted by Jonathan Greechan on 2014-04-24

The Founder Showcase, hosted by TheFunded.com and the Founder Institute, is Silicon Valley's leading seed-stage startup event.

The 15th Founder Showcase is now just three weeks away, and today we are excited to announce another Keynote Speaker: Mike Maples Jr.


Mike Maples Jr. is the Managing Partner at FLOODGATE, and the "#14 Top Tech Investor" on the planet according to Forbes.

Mike's early investments include Twitter, Chegg, ng:moco, IMVU, Gowalla, Kno, YuMe Networks, TaskRabbit, Kongregate, BranchOut, and many more. Before his investment career, Mike also co-founded Motive, Inc., the world's leading broadband software company in 1997, and oversaw its growth through the "dot-bomb" to a successful IPOs in 2004.

At the Founder Showcase, Mike will talk about how to expand and adapt the traditional VC model to create more innovative companies.

Mike will be joining fellow luminaries Mitch Kapor (Founder of Lotus Development & PC Pioneer) and Thomas Korte (Founder of AngelPad) on stage at the event.

Now in its 15th edition, the Founder Showcase is a bi-annual seed-startup event that gathers over 400 startup investors, founders, and press in Silicon Valley to hear from startup experts, and see promising seed-stage companies. In addition to getting the best speakers, we pride ourselves on showcasing the best early-stage companies before anyone else (pun intended). Past contestants have raised over $130 million, and we have showcased companies like UdemyRelay RidesThumbtack, and Kaggle in their infancy. To see the list of all notable companies that have presented, see our Founder Showcase Hall of Fame here.


We look forward to hearing more from Mike on May 15th. Get your tickets today.
