Another start-up firm, Palomar Ventures, Los Angeles, is heading toward an $ 80 million final closing within the next two months, ahead of its $ 75 million target, reports Partner James P. Gauer.At least one advisor, Hamilton Lane Advisors Inc., Philadelphia, do not recommend Palomar to its clients, in part because the two partners have not worked together before.But in general, Mr. Gauer says, investors warmed to the idea of an early-stage information technology fund that would be invested in the neglected Southern California market.
Mr. Gauer co-founded the firm early last year after six years as a partner at Enterprise Partners in Newport Beach, Calif. Randall R. Lunn was most recently a managing director of the Boston office of TVM Techno Venture Management.
