Philadelphia-based First Round Capital, which manages hundreds of six- and seven-figure investments in small tech-oriented firms nationwide, is promoting them through its own Cyber Monday discount page here.
"We’ve been big believers in the future of online commerce," writes partner Josh Kopelman here.
"I'm really excited to announce our eCommerce companies have come together to make gift giving this holiday season just a bit easier and cheaper... Whether it’s Birchbox with discovery through subscription, Fab with curation, or Modcloth building a brand, these companies have set out to redefine traditional eCommerce models... Our companies are offering special Cyber Monday offers exclusively for us that we hope you’ll take advantage of today – before it’s too late."
"Here’s a new one I hadn’t seen before: VCs promoting their portfolio companies to friends, families and associates as a place to do their holiday shopping," writes Tricia Duryee at AllThingsD here.
"More than two dozen of their investments are listing holiday deals for Cyber Monday. Companies participating include One Kings Lane, Kiwi Crate, Birchbox, Dog Vacay, Warby Parker, Fab.com, Threadflip and Hotel Tonight. The offers range from free shipping to $50 or 15 percent off, depending on the kind of products and services for sale.
