Collision Conference is a marketplace in and of itself in the startup community with so many fresh ideas that have been cooking in the great minds of passionate entrepreneurs who are just starting. We have been fortunate over the years to get to know so many of these young companies as they forge their way from concept to successful business. And even though some of them are not able to fully realize their dream this go around, the process is exciting and important, nonetheless. Unfortunately, as we all know too well, an idea nowadays simply isn't enough to bring a product to life in the world. Ideas need resources, many resources, to get started, and a lot of these early-stage companies with prototypes just don't have funds readily accessible. Lucky for them, there are people like David Blumberg, founder of Blumberg Capital, that seek out powerful and unique designs, even with nothing yet to show.
Blumberg Capital is an early-stage, focused venture capital firm that invests in the dreams that passionate entrepreneurs breathe. Their goal is to take these fresh ideas and skyrocket them to build a successful technology company through necessary resources to survive such as finances, business development, customers, and talent acquisition. They benefit from businesses thriving, so they do everything in their power to help an entrepreneur succeed.
Operating for 30 years in North America and Israel, Blumberg Capital manages approximately 550 million US Dollars under management across 5 different funds. Blumberg currently has a partnership with 64 companies as of Collision 2019 and is excited to continue growing for a better and brighter future.
David has an eye for the future and finds excitement in events such as Collision because it bleeds creativity that shows what the can future hold. This is the same energy that our PLuGHiTz team enjoys speaking with to help the same companies gain more coverage and expand their base.
