VC Surprise: Lightspeed Makes a Great Post

Here is a great post by Lightspeed VC Jeremy Liew.  I have to say that I was really surprised.  I thought Lightspeed was an infrastructure firm.  Jeremey really hits it home on the entire value prop of web 2.0.  Nice post Jeremey.

Jeremy Liew joined Lightspeed Venture Partners in 2006 as a Partner.

Previously Jeremy was with AOL, first as SVP of Corporate Development and Chief of Staff to the CEO, and then as General Manager of Netscape. He joined AOL from InterActiveCorp (originally USA Networks) where he was VP of Strategic Planning. While there he was responsible for acquisitions and investments in TV Networks, consumer internet companies and online travel companies. Jeremy started working in the consumer internet industry as an early employee of CitySearch in 1996 where he held a variety of sales management, operational and business development roles. He was also a management consultant at McKinsey and Company.

Jeremy holds an MBA from Stanford and a BA/BSc(Hons) from the Australian National University in Linguistics and Pure Mathematics

  1. Thanks John!

    Lightspeed has had some great successes in infrastructure, but also has a lot of interesting internet companies in its current and past portfolio, including BlueNile,, Doubleclick, Rockyou, Kosmix, Flixster, Stylehive, TheFind, Wikio and others. We’re committed to investing in the internet space.
