Update

After 12 years as a General Partner/Managing Director/Venture Partner at Mayfield Fund, I'm now fully-engaged in two pursuits: (1) as an active venture "Sherpa" and early-stage Angel investor and (2) as a Board Member and Managing Director, New Ventures Group, at Idealab in Pasadena, California (www.idealab.com). I'm also remaining as a Venture Advisor at Mayfield.

Allen Morgan was a Managing Director at Mayfield Fund from 1999 until 2010, focusing on investments in Consumer Internet.

Notable investments included Jotspot (acquired by Google), PlanetOut (acquired by HereMedia), Pluck (acquired by Demand Media), Slide (acquired by Google) and Varsity Group (acquired by Follett Corp). He currently represents Mayfield Fund on the boards of BlackArrow, DECA and Tagged. He is also on the board of Idealab.
