Founder, Quotidian Ventures
came to the United States from Venezuela and founded in 2010. It is a seed stage fund, and Picon’s passion lies in “helping founders create technology products that modernize large industries in which they have deep domain expertise.”
He is also the reFounder (sic) of Matchbook, an app designed to help you remember the places you come across.
The fund focuses mostly on Big Data, Location Based Services, and Mobile Commerce and invest in companies with technology products that modernize large existing industries and in founding teams with unique and proprietary knowledge of the industry they are modernizing. They also tend to focus on the earliest stages of a product’s development, when it’s often pre-product and pre-VC, and on products that represent a radical efficiency leap when compared to existing alternatives, and they prefer New York City-based companies. Gotta love that!
Selected Investments/Boards: Admittedly, Moveline, Comprehend, Tapad, Circa, FieldLens. Locu, Bench
