About

A successful veteran of Silicon Valley, Paul Holland has been a General Partner at top-tier venture capital fund, Foundation Capital, for 17 years. Prior to joining Foundation he had an equally stellar operating career, joining Reed Hastings at Pure Software, ultimately running Europe, Middle East and Africa and helping Pure have one of the hottest IPOs of that vintage. He was later recruited by Benchmark Capital to join Mark Gainey at Kana Communications as its first C-suite executive to help Kana grow quickly and go public, ultimately attaining a $9B market cap. In total, Paul helped generate over $13B in market capitalization during his operating career. As Mach49’s VC-in-Residence, Paul is leveraging his years of experience and extensive Silicon Valley network to help Global 1000 companies design, launch and manage world class corporate venture funds. Once designed, he continues to support these corporate venture groups throughout all phases of the corporate venture lifecycle — pre-investment,-investment, post-investment — providing them with unique access to the Silicon Valley and global startup ecosystems.
