KC venture capital fund closes oversubscribed $17.7M seed fund

Firebrand Ventures has taken a special interest in Kansas City early-stage startups, and Super Dispatch made the list:

“Armed with a funding injection, Kansas City’s Firebrand Ventures is ready to continue its investment roll. The venture capital fund closed its $17.7 million seed fund, which was oversubscribed by about 250 percent, according to a Tuesday blog post by Managing Director John Fein. To date, Firebrand Ventures has made 12 investments, plus several follow-on investments. One of its recent investments was in Super Dispatch in Kansas City, Kan., which developed a platform that helps automotive logistics companies eliminate paperwork and manage loads, drivers and billing in one place.”
