Today, TubeMogul priced on the NASDAQ, listed under the ticker: TUBE! I feel honored to have been invited to the celebration, and nearly choked up when Brett & John invited me to the podium for a group shot.

By going public, TubeMogul joins a very select group of companies — nine out of ten technology companies never make it, and of those that do, only 1% go on to list on a public exchange. TubeMogul is a star, and now represents our best investment to date. We purchased additional shares this morning, and anticipate being stockholders for many years.
We are savoring every moment of this event; and yet, we have a lot of work to do at Bee Partners. With 25 active positions, some further along than others, we’re busy supporting our founders as they grow their businesses.
