Rev3 Founder David Prager forms new fund, Monstro Ventures, to back early-stage tech startups

The team behind Monstro is launching a new microfund called Monstro Ventures, according to co-founder David Prager.

For the unfamiliar, Monstro is an ad agency with headquarters in Oakland and another office in Los Angeles that specializes in video creative, including videos that get hype going around crowdfunding or launches of new tech products.

Prager is best-known as the founder of Revision3, acquired by Discovery Communications in 2012. Rev3, as it is sometimes called, was an early player in Web TV, whose programs then and now cover niche topics in tech, gaming and other areas of pop culture.
