Contour Venture Partners

Contour Venture Partners has raised $14.65 million toward a $50 million target on its second fund, Contour Investments II LLC. The New York-based venture capital firm raised $23 million for its debut fund in 2007. This month the firm invested in a Series A round for OwnEnergy, a wind energy developer based in Brooklyn. Last year the firm led a Series A round of investment in Punchbowl Software Inc., a Framingham, Mass.-based operator of an event-planning website. The firm exited SwapDrive Inc., a Washington, D.C.-based provider of Web-based storage solutions, when the company sold to Symantec Corp. in September 2008.
