FreshTracks Capital announces the closing of FreshTracks III, its third venture capital fund raised since the firm was founded in 2000. This most recent Fund raised $11.5 million from 48 Limited Partners, and intends to invest in 10 – 15 companies over its 10 year life.
What is that mission? Lee Bouyea of FreshTracks Capital says Budnitz made it clear when pitching FreshTracks. “Paul came to us over a year ago and said, ‘I want to build an ad-free social network,’ and he’s never wavered from that vision, and we bought into that vision when we funded this back in January.”
The Lake Champlain Chamber of Commerce named FreshTracks Capital its Business of the Year at the annual dinner held in November at the Sheraton Convention Center in South Burlington.
