Meakem-lead venture Forever.com raises $9M in capital
Local venture capitalist Glen Meakem has raised $9 million for a new company called Forever.com Inc., according to a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
Meakem is co-founder and managing director of Meakem Becker Venture Capital in Sewickley. He and David Koegler, Meakem Becker's chief financial officer, are listed in Forever.com's filing as officers of the new company, which lists its address in One PPG Place, Downtown.
The filing does not describe the business and Meakem could not be reached for comment.
Meakem co-founded FreeMarkets Inc., an online auction site for business services that was acquired by Ariba Inc. in 2004 for $493 million.
There is no working website at forever.com.
Meakem in September trademarked the name ForeverTrust, according to the U.S. Patent and Trademarks Office. ForeverTrust is described as offering computer software and website for preserving, creating, organizing and retrieving personal documents, data, text, photos, music and video.

TribLive commenting policy
You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.
We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
