Former LA Tech Champion Percival Takes Silicon Beach Experience To Norway

Sean Percival, who was once among Silicon Beach's most visible startup entrepreneurs and activists, is taking his experience starting companies in Southern California to Norway--as the head of a new, seed stage venture fund. 500 Startups said today that it is raising a $15M, seed stage fund for Norway, covering Stockholm, Copenhagen, and Oslo, which will be headed by Percival, who ran technology gossip site Lalawag, and also had served at Docstoc, Tsavo Media, Wittlebee, Science Inc., Mahalo, and MySpace. The new effort is being led by Percival, who moved to Silicon Valley two years ago.
