    Description:

    PointGuard Ventures, founded by Krish Panu and Pete Thomas, invests in dynamic new technology companies to create new market opportunities or to solve problems in existing markets more cost effectively. Their venture experience spans over 50 startups, 12 IPOs, and many successful M&A transactions. PointGuard's new fund will invest in software, networking, and hardware to provide 'technology convergence' solutions to many of today's markets including Mobile Commerce, Cloud Computing, Greentech, Point-of-Care medical, Education, and applied Data Analytics. The fund strategy is to invest in a mix of companies in need of Series A & B funding, and in select later stage investments that are based in the US with the potential for early global market entry. PointGuard will initially invest $2 to $10 million into any one company and will invest more than $10M in select deals over the life of the investment.
