VCs Name Firms They Think Will Be Next Microsoft
Los Angeles Business Journal, LOS ANGELES, CA – March 19, 2001 –
Plenty of venture and angel deals have turned sour in recent months, which is testing the fortitude of even the heartiest investors. But despite the uncertainties, several entrepreneurial ventures hold tremendous potential for growth. So the Los Angeles Business Journal asked some veteran local venture capitalists the following question: If you could only invest in one LA – area company, the one with the best chance of emerging as the Amgen or Microsoft of tomorrow, which company would it be?

“Well, 3GA because, if you look at what happened for (Waltham, MA-based software company) Parametric Technologies in the ’90’s, 3GA is the next generation. Intel has dubbed them the great evolutionary technology. And the reason I bring it up is Parametric was a 1,000-time win for its early investors, and we see 3GA having the same capacity.”
