About Lawrence Lenihan
I founded what would become FirstMark Capital in 1996 where I am now the CEO and Managing Director. We are venture capitalists who invest in early stage technology and technology-enabled companies (you can read my whole bio and more about FirstMark at www.firstmarkcap.com). I am also an Adjunct Professor at NYU’s Stern School of Business where I have taught a class called “Ready, FIRE!, Aim.
Frankly, I’ve resisted creating a blog up to now because I did not want to add to the noise in our electronic society. But I changed my mind over the past year as I have watched our economy deteriorate and the world around us change in many different ways. I am convinced that we are about to enter a time of unprecedented change driven by the current economic environment that I believe will shake our financial system, government, social structure and culture to each of their respective foundations. If there is interest, I’ll provide you with some thoughts on these topics in future entries, but the purpose of this blog will be to provide current and future entrepreneurs with what I hope will be helpful thoughts and advice as we enter this time of incredible change and the opportunities that it will bring.
