About

Hi!  I’m Mark Kingdon.  I’m a three-time CEO (Organic, Second Life, NiftyThrifty) and I’ve been investing in startups since 2005. This is my blog.  I’ve invested in two dozen companies: Say:Media, Kidzui, Twitter, 140 Proof, UberMedia, Appstores, SkyRockit, Apptopia, Rally.org, Fab.com, NiftyThrifty, TheRealReal, OfferUp, #waywire, Snapwire, Parentify, Refinery29, Granify, Sellbrite, HomeLight, EveryPost, SKTCHY, Bezar, HYP3R, Blackbird, Revivn, Whereby.us, Gramecy.io and Fame.co.  There are two unicorns in there (i.e., $1B+ valuations — love the unicorn reference Aileen Lee) and a couple of “sparkle ponies” (my term for $100M+ valuations) too!  “Active” companies are in italics.
