ISSUE – Nov. 17 | Slow Ventures launches a new $145M fund and adds Scott Marlette as a partner

Slow Ventures — a previously small-ish fund founded by former Facebook employees — is raising a much larger fund as it looks to grow into something more like a traditional venture firm. Founded by Kevin Colleran and Dave Morin — with former Facebooker Sam Lessin also recently joining — Slow Ventures has raised $145 million for its latest fund. While Slow will continue to focus on earlier-stage investments, but more than half of the fund will be devoted toward more follow-on investments, Colleran said in a blog post. [ Tech Crunch ]
