About I’m Ryan Spoon. I am a Principal at Polaris Venture Partners and lead Dogpatch Labs in San Francisco (located at Pier 38). Either as lead investor or board observer, I work closely with Automattic, Formspring, Frid.ge (acquired by Google), KISSmetrics, LOLapps, Movity (acquired by Trulia), Offline Labs, ReadyForZero, Recurly, and ShoeDazzle.
Previously, I founded beRecruited.com (acquired in 2007), spent 2003-2007 at eBay (internet marketing, social media & leading Kijiji.com) and launched InGameNow as part of sfEntrepreneurs, LLC. Most recently, I ran marketing at Widgetbox.com (now Flite).
