The Directory of Cornell Venture Capitalists

  1. 1. The Directory of Cornell Venture Capitalists A publication of Entrepreneurship@Johnson, a program at The Johnson School, Cornell University 1
  2. 2. Message from the Director of Entrepreneurship@Johnson Our goal was to create a comprehensive directory of Cornell alumni in the venture capital industry. I am sure we have not yet succeeded, but perhaps we are close. While many of you communicate with each other with some regularity, we thought it would be worthwhile to allow others to have the same opportunity. If you know of other VCs that are Cornell alums (undergrad or grad) who are not listed, please let us know and we will add them to the list. And, it would be fantastic to get you back on campus to speak in classes or attend other events such as our annual Entrepreneurship@Cornell Celebration. We are also happy to post job placements with our career office and assist you in any other way we can with recruiting talent. Special thanks to my fabulous interns who did all the hard work: Jeanna Composti, Law 2008, and Roy Ashok, MBA 2009. And another special thanks to Anupendra Sharma at the Medical Solutions Fund at Siemens Venture Capital for initiating the idea of this directory. All the best, Zachary Shulman Director, Entrepreneurship@Johnson The Johnson School Email: zjs2@cornell.edu Cornell office: 607-255-3012 2
