Pace Capital

My past year has been about setting the foundation for a new venture capital firm called Pace Capital. We recently closed our first fund, Pace I, which is a $150 Million vehicle focused on Series A investments. As we were raising the money, investors would ask us, “What’s the brand? How are you going to position the firm?” Our answer, which we deeply believe, is that a venture firm’s brand is the aggregate of the community it builds. Everything else is just hype. Right now our community is small: two GPs (Chris Paik and I) and about a dozen institutional LPs. But so much of what Pace will become is dependent on our future partners, be they the founders we back or the GPs and staff we assemble. To define Pace today would be premature. We have a clear idea of what we want to be, and we’ve laid the groundwork and foundation for that to occur, but ultimately it’s Pace founders who will come to speak for us and define us. They’ll let you know if we are their most valued investor. They’ll let you know the degree of our integrity, whether we help them consistently make good decisions, and if they like spending time with us and each other. They’ll show you what a Pace founder is and what a Pace company is, and you’ll see that Pace is a collection of generation defining entrepreneurs and investors. Until then, we’d love to lead your Series A: jordan@pacecapital.com and chris@pacecapital.com.
