Rannala and William Hsu launched Mucker Capital in 2011, when few other firms were focused on funding and accelerating early stage startups in the Los Angeles area. Since then, the firm has built an impressive portfolio of investments, largely in Southern California-based companies. The firm is now preparing for its latest exit, as Glendale-based ServiceTitan Inc. readies for an initial public offering tentatively set to take place later this year. Another portfolio company, Sawtelle-based Bridg Inc., was acquired last year by Cardlytics Inc. for $579 million. Before launching Mucker, Rannala served as a group manager at eBay Inc., a vice president at TripAdvisor Inc. and an investor at Harrison Metal Capital.
