Saying Goodbye to Lerer Ventures

Posted on May 19, 2015. Filed under: Uncategorized |

All good things must come to an end some time…today we told the team that this current fund is the last one I’ll be investing with Lerer Ventures. After 6 truly extraordinary years, it’s time…I’m so grateful to have had this experience and the opportunity to create LV. More than half of my professional life has been spent working with Kenny and Ben, and more recently Eric and the rest of the LHV team, and it has been a true honor and pleasure. I can’t adequately express my gratitude to the fam…i’ve become the person and professional that I am today through your mentorship, friendship and love. Thank you.

Being an investor is obviously a big piece of where and how I feel creative. I don’t think I’ll ever stop exercising that creativity. I don’t know exactly what shape it will take next, but I find myself looking forward at a blank canvas…and I really like that feeling. I think I’ll live in it for a while and see what kind of trouble I can’t stir up. Oh, and for founders in the portfolio, don’t worry, i’m here to support you same as always.

man…you think through this stuff on paper…and know it’s right…but boy does it feel intense when plans become reality

Still remember those Betabeat videos you guys did. Really enjoyed your sharp insights.

best of luck to you and to LV – both doing great things!

All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.
