I’m extremely excited about the next episode: joining SoftBank Capital for the summer and then starting business school at Yale in the fall. My last 2+ years as an associate at North Atlantic has been amazing and I owe a lot to the partners David Coit and Mark Morrissette. I never really thought I’d end up back in Maine after going to college up here, but being in Portland at NAC has been awesome and I have learned a ton about the venture capital business and entrepreneurship from David and Mark as well as the great management teams of our portfolio companies. At the beginning of June, I start at SoftBank in NYC and will be working with the early stage team (Joe and Nikhil) as well as the growth stage team (Matt and Scarlett). Let’s get ready for the next episode.
