After building a track record for a decade with other early stage venture capital firms like Venrock and USVP I decided to throw my hat in the ring on the entrepreneurial side and co-found a firm called Emergence Capital. Our mission is to be the most important partner for the most important enterprise cloud companies of the future. It's been an amazing 12+ years having raised almost $1 billion, and made early stage investments in such stalwarts as Salesforce.com, SuccessFactors, Veeva, Box and Yammer. We believe our portfolio is making work more fun and productive around the world. We are making our dent in the universe through our amazing entrepreneurs and still having fun working together.
I have served on the boards of Yammer (sold to MSFT), EchoSign (sold to Adobe) and SuccessFactors (IPO then sold to SAP) and was the lead investor in billion+ public companies such as DoubleClick, aQuantive, Visual Networks and Ask Jeeves at my prior firms.
I love entrepreneurship, social entrepreneurship and am a big believer in giving back. I serve on the Board of the NVCA. I am a Founding Board member of Endeavor which helps entrepreneurs around the world in developing economies and have served on that board for over 15 years. I led the successful spinout as Founding Chairman of the Kauffman Fellows Program, the leading educational fellowship in venture capital. I served as Chairman of California Research Center for HBS and on the board of the Rock Center for Entrepreneurship.
I believe entrepreneurship is the finest engine of capturing human potential on the planet and the practice needs to be spread far and wide. Great entrepreneurs need great financial partners to achieve their dreams which is why I'm equally focused on spreading good practice globally on that front.
Was a Dartmouth '89 and HBS '94. For fun like to travel abroad, play tennis, hang with my two great kids and wife, workout, and enjoy a great pinot noir. Funniest fact is I'm a twin married to a twin!
