I Love the Start

May 15, 2014

As some of you know already, I decided this year to leave Blumberg Capital to start something new, and the news will be out shortly.

I am very grateful for all of the opportunities that I had with Blumberg.  It is hard to believe that I was part of 46 investments with the team in less than 4 years!  I worked hard, brought in quite a few deals, learned a lot, and had a great time.  I was able to sit on 21 boards and a bunch of observer roles in multiple countries.  Invaluable experience.  I miss the team and the companies that I was working with, but as everyone knows, the world is shrinking fast, and there aren’t really goodbyes.  It is just a question of when you work together next.

Now I’m fully immersed in the fun and challenge of my new adventure.  As I went through the process of deciding what I wanted to do next, I came to the conclusion that I simply love the start.  I love investing early in companies that are just starting; that is when it is most exciting.  Going back to my entrepreneur roots, I love the beginning when you have to figure things out.  I am losing sleep because I can’t turn my brain off thinking about all the things that need to be done, and how we might be able to move faster.  I wake up feeling energized even though I’m not getting much sleep.  I love it!  Someday there will be time for more sleep, but it isn’t now, not while we are building the foundation for a platform we hope will help the global entrepreneurial ecosystem.

I’m always looking for ideas and feedback, and the best way to reach me is  jon.soberg AT gmail.
