Structure Partners, a New Hollywood-Based Start-Up Accelerator and Venture Capital Firm Focused on Media-Centric Emerging Technology, Announces a First Closing of its Initial Fund


Hollywood, CA (PRWEB) June 06, 2013

Structure Partners is proud to announce a first closing to its new venture fund this week, Structure Fund. In addition to deploying capital, Structure Partners provides operational advisory work to early stage, qualified start-ups, assisting its clients in refining and developing their key products or services.

Due to its dual mandate, Structure Partners takes a hands-on approach to venture investing. Structure Partners identifies young companies with enormous potential and becomes an operational partner (in some cases a co-founder) for a period of three-to-six months. If during their tenure they believe that investing their capital will benefit both the company and their investors, they will invest a portion of the associated venture fund, called Structure Fund. The ideal candidate is a company that has raised an angel round, but has not developed far enough to be a strong candidate for a Series A Round. Thats where Structure can be of paramount value. Towards this end, Structure has already struck deals with four companies: Wallaby Financial, Venga, Grade A Sign, and Fightclub.com. With a just-closed fund in tow, they are already in conversations with several other promising companies.

Structure Partners is led by Adam Shaw, President, and Elijah Kim, Executive Partner, who bring more than 30 years of combined experience to the firm. Shaw is the former Chief Executive Officer of Digital Artists Entertainment (DA), a digital studio he co-founded with Creative Artists Agency (CAA). Prior to managing DA, he co-founded internet advertising company Spotrunner. Earlier in his career Adam held several senior executive positions with FOX during an eight-year tenure, including Senior Vice-President of Business Development for Fox Cable and acting Chief Operating Officer for FX Network. As an executive with FOX, Shaw played an integral role in helping the company acquire and launch new cable networks. Following FOX, Shaw spent 4 years with the National Football League (NFL) where he was also responsible for launching the NFLs cable network NFL Network.

Kim brings substantial experience in the digital media and technology industries, helping to deploy new technologies for large media companies. He was the youngest executive team member with Universal Music Groups Global Digital Business, which led to his involvement with the launch of VEVO, YouTubes popular dedicated music channel. His experience includes the strategic development of products, distribution, and advanced commerce technologies.

Part of the inspiration of Structure Partners was to provide a solution to the challenges I faced as a CEO running a start-up. Now, I want to nurture and oversee the development of other start-ups using a very hands-on and personal approach to ensure our clients will flourish, said Shaw.

Shaw and Kim are also leading the charge for several businesses being built around digital brands, including YouTube sensations Chriselle Lim and ISA (International Secret Agents), a consortium of digital video stars that includes Far East Movement, whose single Like a G6 reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 and iTunes. Structure Partners has a diverse client portfolio with a focus on digital technology, music, entertainment, and sports. The firm has a proven track record for steering its start-ups to the most effective operational direction and funding opportunities to put clients on a path to profitability.

We are at the nexus of Tech and Media here in Los Angeles. Being a native in both worlds provides a powerful platform to help start-ups bridge this gap, and as operational advisors we have a vested interest beyond traditional advising or consulting, said Kim.

Perfect Market Selected as a Red Herring Top 100 North America Tech Startup


Monterey, CA (PRWEB) May 31, 2013

Red Herring announced its Top 100 award in recognition of the leading private companies from Americas, celebrating these startups innovations and technologies across their respective industries.

Red Herring Top 100 America enlists outstanding entrepreneurs and promising companies. It selects one hundred Award winners, among the 3000 tech startups financed each year in the US and Canada. Since 1996, Red Herring keeps tabs on the up and comers. Red Herring editors were among the first to recognize that companies such as Facebook, Twitter, Google, Yahoo, Skype, Salesforce.com, YouTube, Marin Software, Palo Alto Networks, and eBay would change the way we live and work.

In 2013, selecting the Top 100 achievers was by no means a small feat, said Alex Vieux, publisher and CEO of Red Herring. In fact, we had the toughest time in years because so many entrepreneurs have crossed significant milestones so early. But after much thought, rigorous contemplation and discussion, we narrowed our list down from hundreds of candidates from across North America to the Top 100 Winners. We believe Perfect Market embodies the vision, drive and innovation that define a successful entrepreneurial venture. Perfect Market should be proud of its accomplishment, as the competition was very strong.

Red Herrings editorial staff evaluated the companies on both quantitative and qualitative criteria, such as financial performance, technology innovation and intellectual property, management quality, business model, customer footprint, and market penetration. This assessment of potential is complemented by a review of the track record and standing of startups relative to their sector peers, allowing Red Herring to see past the buzz and make the list a valuable instrument of discovery and advocacy for the most promising new business models in North America.

"Over the past year, Perfect Market has experienced triple-digit growth, tripled our customer base and expanded our product offering through our Digital Publishing Suite," said Julie Schoenfeld, Chief Executive Officer of Perfect Market. "Being recognized as a Red Herring Top 100 Company is a real honor, and all credit goes to our hard-working team and wonderful customers."

ActSeed Profiles Promising New Crowdfunded Startup: SIA Scotch Whisky


San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) December 07, 2012

ActSeed welcomes Carin Castillo and her new venture, SIA Scotch Whisky to the ActSeed community as she pursues seed capital through a crowdfunding project on Kickstarter.

After more than 100 blind tastings, researching over 80 distillers and a decade-long dream of creating a new blend of Scotch, Carin Castillo is almost to the first major gate in her journey to introduce the next great Scotch to the world. In approximately one month, Castillo will receive her first 250 cases of SIA Scotch Whisky.

Like more than half of all entrepreneurs, Carin has self-funded the first phase of her company. She invested a significant amount of time to learn what her customers want.

"I've funded my company by bootstrapping (working a second job doing freelance design to pay for all of the research and development going into developing this new brand of Scotch Whisky," said Castillo. "It's been a labor of love and because there is no guideline or book about how to do this, it's been a huge learning curve, and one I've enjoyed every step of the way."

ActSeed champions "main street entrepreneurship" startups that are not necessarily in the Silicon Valley mold, but have enormous potential to become a job creator and net contributor to our struggling company.

Like most startups, SIA Scotch Whisky is not the prototypical venture capital investment, but now non-tech startups have ways to attract seed funding from thousands of small donations through a crowdfunding site.

"We applaud the discipline and tenacity that Carin has shown in laying a firm foundation for her new business," said Bill Attinger, CEO of ActSeed. "SIA Scotch Whisky is now tapping an innovative source of funding through the Kickstarter community, and we expect Carin to achieve her funding goal soon."
