Justin Label is Inner Loop’s principal investor. Justin has eighteen years’ experience working with private companies as a venture capital investor and advisor. He spent ten years at Bessemer Venture Partners in Silicon Valley, where he was involved with most of BVP’s Cyber Security investments between 2001 and 2011.
At Bessemer, Justin served on the board of Tripwire, Inc., a $100m-revenue Cyber Security company originally based on the successful Tripwire open source code. He sourced Bessemer’s investments in Postini, the leading service-based email security company (acquired by Google); Cyota, the innovative financial security and anti-phishing service (acquired by RSA/EMC); and Elemental Security, the unsuccessful but brilliant and ambitious vision of Cyber Security guru Dan Farmer (COPS, SATAN). Justin also served as a board observer or diligence lead for Cyber Security companies Finjan, Counterpane, Qualys, Sarvega, Nominum, LifeLock and Site Advisor.
Justin moved to Baltimore in 2014, and began making personal seed-stage investments. Justin is an investor in five D.C.-area cybersecurity companies: Terbium Labs, Virgil Security, Cybrary, NS8, and Protego. Four of those five have raised institutional Series A rounds subsequent to Inner Loop Capital’s investments. Justin is also a seed-stage investor in two California-based companies in cyber-security and other fields.
