I recently decided to make a career change and at the end of the month will be leaving the world of venture capital (as some affectionately refer to as ‘The Dark Side’) for the maybe greener and definitely more uncertain pastures of the startup world. My time at L Capital over the last year has been great, and I’ve learned an incredible amount about startups and investing, but I recently came upon an opportunity which was just too good to pass up.
I’m joining an early stage software company in the virtualization management and automation space and will be involved in all manner of customer development, biz dev, and marketing. I’m going to work with a great team and a stellar set of investors, all who are laser focused on building a great company. Needless to say, I am very excited about this move.
I’m not going to post details about the company publicly at this point, but will certainly do so after I have spent some time in the new job. If you have a strong interest or background in virtualization technology and would like to discuss what we’re working on, feel free to reach out to me directly.
Thanks as always for reading, and although I’m no longer a VC at the end of the month, I hope you still keep reading!
