I deeply appreciate David's approach to life and work. On this episode of LA Venture, hear Fleck talk about founding FreeFlow in order to invest in startups coming out of Caltech that have the potential to improve our world.
Javelin's Alex Gurevich talks with us about investing in Masterclass, Thumbtack, Mythical Games and more. Alex also tells us why VCs should be getting performance reviews from their founders.

Bonfire Ventures, the Santa Monica seed-stage venture fund that has carved a niche focusing exclusively on unsexy but potentially lucrative business-to-business (B2B) software, has closed its second fund with $100 million in dry powder, up from the $63 million fund it closed in 2017. Adopting an "if ain't broke, don't fix it" ethos, little will change with the latest fund, except initial check sizes will be larger, though not dramatically so, averaging $1.75 million versus $1.25 million for Bonfire I. 60% will be set aside for follow-up investment.
