Jun co-founded BAM Ventures with Brian Lee in 2014. The firm invests in seed-stage companies developing consumer-focused technologies. Among the firm’s biggest success stories so far is Honey Science Corp., which sold to PayPal in 2020 for $4 billion. The firm celebrated another exit in September, when Century Citybased feline health startup PrettyLitter sold to Mars Inc., reportedly for a price just under $1 billion. Jun is a former corporate attorney and, prior to establishing BAM Ventures, served as general counsel for fashion subscription service ShoeDazzle. In this role, Jun oversaw the company’s merger with El Segundo-based Fabletics Inc. (d.b.a. TechStyle Fashion Group) in 2013.
