“The Foundry Network started organically 15 years ago and is now an ever-expanding community of founders, executives, and early-stage VCs. Instead of an insular network where the VCs are the gatekeepers, the Foundry Network is a flywheel for shared ideas, resources, learning, and growth.”
Brad Feld is a partner and co-founder of Foundry. He has been an early-stage investor and entrepreneur for over 35 years, since founding his first company, Feld Technologies, in college. Brad is also a co-founder of Techstars and, with his wife Amy Batchelor, runs the Anchor Point Foundation.
Brad has written several books on entrepreneurship and venture capital and started blogging in 2004 before VC Twitter existed.
Brad holds Bachelor of Science and Master of Science degrees in Management Science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Brad is also an art collector and long-distance runner who enjoys wandering around alone in the mountains for hours at a time.
