    Description:

    Rincon Venture Partners fills the need for more modest first-round funding. The firm's initial investment in a company is typically in the range of $500,000 to $1.5 million, and Rincon is typically a company's first institutional investor. The firm targets a geographic region that it believes displays favorable supply-demand characteristics for venture capital investing. This region is bounded by San Luis Obispo, CA to the north, and Orange County to the south. Rincon considers investments outside of this area, but generally only in conjunction with strong co-investors who are located near the company. The firm focuses on sectors such as digital media, cleantech, technology-enabled services, and consumer Internet, but remains open-minded with regard to opportunities in other sectors. The average total investment over a portfolio company's life is $3,000,000.
