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.
