The Tiger Team
Jon Callaghan

Co-Founder, True Venture Partners, Menlo Park CA

Jon founded True because he saw a gap in the market for experienced VC funding for the earliest stage companies.  Jon's long history with startups began in 1986 when he founded his first company, Mountain Bike Outfitters, Inc. Over the next several years, he would go on to co-found Chemdex Corporation with David Perry, now NexPrise Corporation (NASDAQ: NXPS), and Greenwich LLC, a streaming music company, which was acquired by iCast. Jon started his venture career as an associate at Summit Partners where he focused on growth stage investments in the software industry. With the Internet just beginning, Jon jumped in early, joining CMGi's @Ventures group initially in 1996. By 2001, Jon was a Managing Partner, and the firm managed over $3 billion. His @Ventures deals include Critical Path (NASDAQ “CPTH”), Gamers.com, Hotlinks, Onelist/eGroups (acquired by Yahoo), Promedix (acquired by Ventro — NASDAQ “VNTR”), and MyFamily.com.  Before founding True, Jon was a Managing Director at Globespan, where he served on the boards of Copan Systems, FilmLoop, Glu Mobile (fka Sorrent), Ingrian Networks, Next Medium Networks, Nominum Corp., Plaxo, Sigma Dynamics, and Vazu.  Jon obtained a BA from Dartmouth College and an MBA with distinction from Harvard Business School.  To learn more about Jon and True Ventures, please visit www.truevp.com.
