Miracle Ventures
Managing Partner
2013-Present

Miracle Ventures is an impact venture firm that makes seed stage investments, typically in the range of $50K-$250K, in start-ups solving major healthcare problems and working to extend life by 10-20 years. In short, the company invests in those who are creating miracles.

 

Vidyasa, Inc.
Consultant and Advisorvidyasa-logo
2012-Current

Vidyasa is a digital agency specializing in video. The company currently operates two divisions that I co-founded before they were acquired by Vidyasa. VideoPros helps people produce, manage, and distribute videos and has a full production studio in Denver. VidStore helps people create online video stores to monetize their video content.

 

Fairway Properties, Inc. fairway
President and Director
2007-2012

Fairway Properties, Inc. (OTCQB:FRYP) was an online portal for golf real estate and digital marketing. I co-founded the company and funded it by raising financing from 37 accredited investors in Wyoming, Colorado and Texas. The company went public in 2009 by filing a Form 10. During the collapse of the golf and real estate markets the company not only managed to sustain operations, but experienced modest growth. In 2012, Fairway Properties, Inc. executed a reverse merger and was acquired by Medient Studios (OTCQB:MDNT). Investors to date have realized a 50%-500% return on their investment.

 

Niche Technologies Inc.niche
Partner
2006-2012

Niche Technologies was a venture capital incubator founded in 2006 by my brother Michae Murphyl. Shortly after starting the company, I joined him and then a year later my younger brother Darren came on board. As partners in the company, we operated a seed stage accelerator making investments in internet and media ventures.

From 2006-2008, Michael and I raised $2.5M to capitalize the company’s ventures and made investments ranging from $25,000 to $500,000. Over time, the Niche Technoloiges incubator grew from three brothers (working in our basement) to a team of 15 people spread across the various ventures. From 2006-2012 we funded, grew and exited all of the ventures we started. They are as follows:

VideoPros: A venture providing video management, distribution and production services. Michael and I co-founded and funded VideoPros with capital from Niche Technologies. We grew the venture to 10 employees and revenues increased steadily until the venture was acquired by Vidyasa, Inc.

LUX.com: Originally intended to be the center piece of a network of luxury themed advertising and marketing websites, ultimately went undeveloped. Michael and I negotiated the transaction and sale of the domain and it stands as one of the top domain name sales of 2011. Niche Technologies realized a 150% ROI.

Vidli: A venture providing online video licensing. The venture was founded and funded in the Niche Technologies incubator in 2009 and subsequently sold to a private buyer in 2011.

Zprosper: A network marketing and media venture formed in partnership with Zrii International as a product distributor. The venture provided personal development and life coaching services. In 2010 the venture was purchased by a private buyer.

LuxuryProperty.com: An online portal for luxury real estate. The company was spun off to new management in 2011.

Niche Properties: An online network of 13 niche real estate websites providing services in online advertising and marketing. The company was spun off to new management in 2011.
