Andy interviewed Steve Jurvetson at the AlwaysOn conference about IMMI, one of the companies where his premier venture capital group Draper Fisher Jurvetson has invested.
Jurvetson also talked about other exciting companies in DFJ’s portfolio, like women’s lifestyle site and Web 2.0 success story Glam. The site has rocketed past competitor iVillage
to become one of the top 15 most popular Web sites in the United
States, receiving more U.S. impressions per day than Facebook, Jurvetson says.
