Signal Lake is a leading early-stage venture fund focusing on next generation technologies. Signal Lake is on the cutting edge of technology and innovation. We understand bleeding edge technology but also the more mundane technology that we use in our everyday lives. Understanding practical technology gives us an advantage when looking to the future and in dealing with the present. Signal Lake was one of the first companies to discover, and discredit a falsified email in court. We understood how email worked and how to go about proving the veracity of email. This was years before mandated email retention policies like Sarbanes-Oxley. This case has since become a canonical piece in computer forensics.
