MEMBER NEWS: INNOVATION PAYS OFF IN FUNDING FOR CLUB MEMBER'S COMPANY
Congrats to Jeff Grass, WG99, and his team at LiveSafe,
where his third time as a startup entrepreneur is again a charm!
This just in from fellow Wharton alum Jeff Grass:
Saw your note about the upcoming Wharton Club Innovation Summit… as a now third time entrepreneur, I thought I’d share some of the good news we announced this week at LiveSafe… we announced internet powerhouse IAC as the lead investor in a $6.5M Series A financing and that billionaire Barry Diller has taken a personal interest and joined the LiveSafe Board of Directors.
Here’s what was in the NY Times http://dealbook.nytimes.com/2014/03/25/livesafe-a-mobile-safety-app-raises-6-5-million-from-iac-and-others/ and a clip of Jenny from our team being featured on CNBC Squawk Box. Exciting times! [To go to their website, LiveSafeMobile.com, CLICK HERE )
