On Age...

Pg_41e___man__showing_progressive_aI've been thinking a lot about age recently.  As my age catches up to my rapidly graying hair, I'm realizing that I'm no longer the youngest guy in the room...

Today, Business Week released their list of "Tech's Best Young Entrepreneurs", where they highlight eleven "of the tech industry's most promising players aged 30 and under...whose ideas and innovations are likely to make the biggest impact on technology in the coming years." 

While I have always said that my fund, First Round Capital, seeks to invest in incredible entrepreneurs, I was amazed to learn that we had funded 4 of the 11 finalists.  So, while I'm still coping with the fact that I'm too old to make any "young" list myself, I can take comfort in the fact that we had backed more than a third of the finalists.

Congratulations to:
