    LiveOak Venture Partners is an Austin-based, early-stage venture capital firm, founded by three veterans of Austin Ventures. LiveOak targets initial investments of $1M - $4M. The team plans to invest as much $7M to $10M in 15 to 17 early-stage companies. While many of their investments begin at the seed stage, LiveOak is a full life-cycle investor focused on technology and technology-driven service companies primary based in Texas and the Southwest. For over a decade, the Founders of LiveOak have helped entrepreneurs create industry-leading companies, such as Spatial Wireless (acquired by Alcatel-Lucent), Navini Networks (acquired by Cisco Systems), LifeSize Technologies (acquired by Logitech) and Mavenir Systems (NYSE:MVNR).
