Bringing (More of) Silicon Valley to DC

Posted by Paul Singh on Apr 29, 2014 11:15:00 AM


You’ll often hear investors claim that “it’s all about the team” when it comes to assessing investment opportunities. I’m confident that they’re wrong: it’s not about the team, it’s about what the team can do. Past performance is easily the best predictor of future results.

We're building a new kind of asset management & financial services firm for the private market and we’ve come a long way over the past few months: hiring for the mainstreaminvesting in great post-seed companies, creating products for our customers and even building a tech city.

To help us get to the next stage, I’m excited to share that George Kellerman is joining the Disruption team and will be a Partner in Crystal Tech Fund. He and his family will soon be relocating from northern California to northern Virginia.

I worked with George during my time at 500 Startups[1] in Silicon Valley and he is a clear asset. George will bring boundless energy, the discipline of his military and legal background, and a solid track record of execution to Disruption Corporation -- and to the greater DC tech community, too.

Welcome aboard, George. This is going to be fun!
