Howard Morgan’s inimitable career began with his early and prescient interest in computers. In fact, Howard has been on email for 51 years! He is currently the Chair and General Partner of B Capital. He is considered one of the pioneers of early-stage investing, having co-founded First Round Capital alongside Josh Kopelman, which was the first professional seed stage fund and the first institutional investor in Uber.

Prior to First Round, Howard helped found Idealab with Bill Gross, and served as President of Renaissance Technologies, which he co-founded with Jim Simons. Renaissance Technologies is the best performing investment firm of all time, and its mysterious and famous Medallion Fund is considered to be the most successful fund ever.

Howard shares insights into the importance of being at the right place at the right time, choosing great partners, and his approach to investments, mentorship, health, and philanthropy. Listen in on Michael Sonnenfeldt’s conversation with the globally recognized venture capitalist, visionary, and TIGER 21 Member Howard Morgan.
