By leading early stage investments in Yelp, Pinterest and LinkedIn, Jeremy Levine has earned a reputation for spotting fledgling stars while others miss them. His success has made him a staple of Forbes’ “Midas List” of technology investors.

Based in New York (but traveling to wherever exceptional founders are based), Jeremy was among the earliest VCs to identify the importance of user-generated content by investing in Yelp, LinkedIn, OLX, and Wikia in 2005/06 and Pinterest in 2011. Now that Yelp and LinkedIn are public and OLX is a multi-billion dollar division of Naspers, the value in user-generated content seems obvious.

More recently, he focused on the potential of vertical cloud software for small businesses with investments in MindBody, Shopify and Xtime while many dismissed the category as “too nichey.” Within the last year even Salesforce, the goliath of horizontal software, announced the importance of “vertical specialization,” and Jeremy has two IPOs and an M&A exit to support the trend. Currently, Jeremy is focused on new investments in Internet marketplaces (e.g., Raise) and the explosion of consumer video (e.g., KnowMe).

Jeremy graduated from Duke University with a B.S. in computer science and economics. Earlier in his career, he led operations for an Internet-software publisher, and worked at AEA Investors, a management buyout firm. He started his career as a management consultant with McKinsey & Company.
