<-‘Foundry Group Raises $225 Million Early Stage VC Fund’
If you recognize the syntax above, you’ll recognize the first programming language I ever used.
10 PRINT “Foundry Group Raises $225 Million Early Stage VC Fund”
That would be the second language I coded in.
WriteLn(‘Foundry Group Raises $225 Million Early Stage VC Fund’);
And that would be the third. These three examples are minor derivations of everyone’s first program – also known as “Hello World” – written in APL, Basic, and Pascal for the non-nerds among you.
Last year I co-founded Foundry Group with four partners – Seth Levine, Jason Mendelson, Ryan McIntyre, and Chris Wand. In the fall we closed our first fund – a $225 million fund aimed at funding early stage software and Internet companies in the United States.
We are now officially open for business. We’ve made a few investments which we’ll write about over the next few weeks. In the mean time we want to thank everyone – especially our new limited partners and the many entrepreneurs who we’ve worked with over the years – that have enabled us to be in a position to raise this fund.

Bonus points to anyone that figures out the last programming language.
