The Next Chapter

Earlier today we announced that I will be joining Balderton Capital, an early stage Venture Capital firm, as a General Partner. blinkx started back in 2004, and this is the first time I’ve done anything other than that in ten years (well, apart from that whole getting married and becoming a dad thing of course!).

I will write more about what I’m looking at and my experiences on this new path soon but, in the meantime, I’m just really very excited to be throwing myself back into early stage companies that are trying to re-write the rules and nothing short of awestruck that I get to do it with a team as talented as the team at Balderton. They already work with and for a roster of some of the most interesting new companies in Europe and I look forward to finding more with whom to work.  There’s a lot going on right now and between my continuing role at blinkx and this new endeavor I’m fortunate to have a prime vantage point on these exciting times and I’m committed to continuing to share as much of that as possible with those who are interested.

  2. Thank you!

    Per this: http://www.blinkx.com/corporate/article/index?id=2077 there’s no change from a blinkx perspective so you should be worried only if you were worried before!

      Thanks for taking the time to write back!

      I was a shareholder in AuTN since 1999 and keeping the faith in the co’s vision and mission did pay off in the end. So i have come to see it with Blnx.

      So, not worried, but nonetheless happy about the feedback:)

      I look forward to hearing more about your new experiences!
