Looking For A ‘Partner in Crime’ At Intel Capital

By Christine Herron (Director, Intel Capital)
We recently announced that Intel Capital Director Baris Aksoy is headed to Turkey to lead our new Istanbul office. As suspected, this means that we are seeking a new Director to join us on the Consumer Internet team at Intel Capital. Interested? Read on.
Who are we looking for? Ideally, our new partner is based in the Bay Area, has a great network, and is known and respected as an Internet investor. You complement our diverse crew (a FEM of 67!) with collective experiences ranging from serial entrepreneur seed investor investment banker.
The role? To identify emerging segments; source, negotiate, and structure deals; and work with management teams to build companies. Our team invests in disruptive mobile and/or social companies, consumer services, and key enabling platforms.
Intel Capital works with startups like 500 Friends, Ark, betaworks, Jelli, Kabam!, Urban Airship, Voxer, and YuMe. You can see a broader sampling on my Internet deals board. (We invest globally, too.)
Want to help us find and grow more great companies like these? Drop us a line and introduce yourself. Share helpful links. (Your AngelList or LinkedIn profile, twitter stream, blog posts, etc.) Tell us what next Big Thing excites you, and let’s help make it happen.
UPDATE: Given the number of offline requests, I thought it might be helpful to share exactly why I took a role at Intel Capital. 18 months in to the job, and everything is ringing true. Five new investments, plus three assumed via follow-on; four seeds, two Series As, two Series Bs. Awesome entrepreneurs that I’m able to get special advantages for by leveraging the Intel brand.
