Jeff,
Congrats! You are a great investor and I'm sure that you'll continue to ID the winners. Having a comp sci background plus all your experience in investing and venture will go miles in doing great deals.

Julien

That's interesting! Congratulations...

You said you'll remain alone, well, that's not the common team size for a VC, but I guess you'll benefit from the extensive support of the board of trustees as well as the investors you brought to your fund!

Congrats again!

Congratulations Jeff! Awesome!

Mixed feelings:

- very happy for you to be able to move forward with more fuel and no limit in sight

- so sorry that your story will probably never happen here (France, Europe)

Beware of the downturn :)

Many congratulations on the IPO! (Isn't raising LP money like taking a startup public?)

Philip Wilkinson

Great news Jeff regarding the new fund. 25+ investments in early stage companies is exciting for you, but also for us entrepreneurs! Good luck.

Face it Jeff, you were made for the dark side - some people just have affinities for that part of the Force! Since I met you when you were on the dark side (Reuter's Greenhouse) I can attest that VC-hood will do you good.
