Together we have raised over $40M in capital, spanning various companies and our history dates back to the first ever Internet IPO (Netcom Online Communications), as well as the development of the first ever World Wide Web Directory (sold to McMillan Publishing) and even deploying a first mover social network by the name of nettaxi.com, which was prior to Facebook and resulted in a top 10 most trafficked web site in the World, with a market cap of approximately $700M upon exit. Our teams have developed relationships over the years that include such companies as Apple, ebay and AT&T, as well as joint ventures with Music Industry Giants, including Nocturne Productions, Herbie Herbert (Manager of the Band Journey) and Music.com; an early adopter offering digital music downloads.
