The stock markets are taking a beating and venture capital is at an all-time low, but that hasn’t stopped J.L. Albright Venture Partners (JLA Ventures) from seeking out promising investments. In the past 11 months, the Toronto-based VC firm – which also co-manages the $150-million Blackberry Partners Fund – has invested $36.5 million in Internet, digital media, e-commerce and mobile companies, including $5 million in seed funding for GlassBOX‘s Bite TV relaunch and AUX launch.
