General Partner Upfront Ventures Upfront Ventures invests almost 50% of its funding in Los Angeles-based companies, including Ring, Bird, Goat and Parachute Home. Suster joined the venture capital firm in 2007 and became managing partner in 2011. By 2019, Upfront had $2 billion in capital under management. In January 2020, a few short months before the global pandemic shut down the world’s economies, Suster rented out the Rose Bowl for its Upfront Summit, an annual invitation-only conference that Suster started in 2012 to showcase the L.A. tech sector and attract more investment to the region.
