Venture Capital:  Yesterday – Today – Tomorrow with Dick Kramlich

Dick Kramlich has been one of the trendsetters in the Venture Capital Industry. For his own account, he was an early investor in Apple, later also in PowerPoint. Dick began his venture career in 1969 as a GP with Arthur Rock and Co. after 9 years in general management as Manager of Financial Planning at the Kroger Co. and in investment management as EVP at Gardner & Preston Moss Company in Boston. Since co-founding NEA in 1978, he has been involved in ten companies that have grown from start-up to a multibillion company. NEA has grown to the largest VC firm in the world to date with over $20 billion AuM. Under Dick’s tenure, NEA returned >40% to his LPs across all the funds. When Dick turned 80, he started another early-stage VC boutique firm in San Francis-co focusing on deep-tech (Green Bay Ventures) and another team for ‘Unicorn Intments’ (Green Bay Growth).
