    Founded in 2004 by Ben Barak, Andrea Sloan Pink and John Kensey, Seraphim Management is a venture fund management company which currently manages Seraphim Fund I, an early stage fund of nearly $3 million dollars that invests in technology companies in Southern California. Seraphim Fund I closed 2004 with committed investments of $2.93 million from accredited investors, many of whom are Tech Coast Angel (TCA) members (see profile). The fund will invest alongside TCA, a prominent source of early-stage funding and guidance for successful emerging companies in Southern California. In order to meet the objective criteria, prospective portfolio companies must have received a minimum investment of $350,000 from TCA members, 10 individual TCA members must have made investments in the company in the investment round, and a TCA member must have a seat or observation rights on the company's board. The Seraphim family of funds, through its Fund I initially will focus on investments in Southern California, but is not limited geographically for investments by investors. Investors must contribute a minimum of $50,000, but cannot invest more than $125,000.
