    Description:

    Founded in 2009, Freestyle Capital is a seed stage investor and mentor for Internet software startups. The firm is interested in decentralized distribution of media and information, Twitter, cloud computing and crowd sourcing. Josh Felser, a General Partner at Freestyle, worked at News Corp for four years. He also worked in new media as co-founder and president of Spinner, the first multi-channel Internet radio service and was co-founder and CEO of Grouper/Crackle, one of the first Internet video networks. Both companies were acquired in less than three years for $320M (AOL) and $65M (Sony Pictures) respectively. Felser and his partner from Spinner and Grouper, Dave Samuel, started Freestyle Capital to fill the void between retreating angels and VCs moving to later stage investments.
