Ted joined Charles River in 1996 and has more than nineteen years of experience in early-stage venture investing, focusing on software and information services companies. He has been an early and active investor in numerous successful start-ups including several that had successful IPOs (Acusphere, Be Free, Entelos, Flycast, Ibis Technology, Individual, NetGenesis, Software Quality Automation and Vignette) or were acquired on a very favorable basis (Brontes Technologies, edocs, Novera, PCs Compleat, Venetica, Upromise, WebSpective and Ximian). Ted is currently a director of Compete and Netezza.

Prior to his career in venture, Ted was general manager of the Digital Signal Processing Division of Analog Devices, which he directed from the start-up phase to a leading position in a rapidly-growing sector of the semiconductor industry. His work experience also includes two years as a Congressional staff assistant, where he contributed to science and technology policy.
