Joining Venrock to do VC in Boston
I’ve had a few months downtime since I left Boundless, and go figure, I decided to spend most of my time meeting and helping other entrepreneurs. You’d think I was hooked.
Well, I am, and so I’m excited to share that I’ve joined Venrock as a Vice President in the Cambridge office, working locally with Mike Tyrrell, to help make more investments in the Boston ecosystem.
I first met team Venrock when they invested in our Series A at Boundless; Mike joined our board, and it’s been great getting to know him over the past year or so - I jokingly called him the “rock”: Mike is a stable, no non-sense, straight-shooter with deep experience, so when he offered me the opportunity to join team Venrock I considered it seriously. After thinking about the role, and meeting the rest of the investment team, I was blown away by the degree of aggregated-smarts - and totally convinced.
Ultimately, I love people, ideas, technology and learning - so I can’t think of a better way to combine my passions than a job that enables me to meet smart entrepreneurs, learn about the their big ideas & novel technology, with the added bonus that perhaps Venrock can help them realize their vision for change.
Dear Boston Entrepreneurs,
I’m really looking forward to working with you! If nothing else, I pride myself on being approachable and helpful. Let’s think big, and do great things together!
