Persefon was a great period for Marc, John, and Jean, lasting from 2009 to 2012. We've left this up as a memento, but have all moved on.
As Douglas Adams said, "The Commercial Council of Magrathea thanks you for your esteemed visit but regrets that the entire planet is temporarily closed."


At Persefon we concentrate on seed stage mentoring and capital investment for startups in Consumer, Collaboration, Computing Infrastructure on Web and Mobile platforms.

We get excited about teaming up with entrepreneurs with a demonstrable idea, a bead on an established market and need, and a realistic notion of where they can make money from it.

We’re clear on the factors we believe lead to success and their order of importance: Talent, Market, Technology

We’d rather get involved in a company with great potential for profitability and sustainability and a good chance of becoming really really successful than in one with a slim chance of getting to an IPO.  We’re not looking to slam it out of the park or go home, but to reliably create great companies.

We’re entrepreneurs, technologists and founders ourselves, and can help you navigate the early stages of company and product creation.

If you think we might be a good match, drop us a line and tell us what you’re excited about.
