General Counsel and Chief Operating Officer
Jason M. Lynch oversees Foundry’s operations, manages the firm’s investment and fundraising processes, consults with portfolio companies on legal issues, and is responsible for all legal matters associated with fund and management company operations and the partners’ service on company boards of directors. Jason also serves on the boards of several portfolio companies.
Jason has counseled public and private companies for almost two decades. Prior to joining Foundry, Jason was a partner at Davis, Graham, & Stubbs, one of Denver’s leading law firms, and he began his career in New York at Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz.
In private practice, he focused on business and securities litigation, represented numerous companies in Foundry’s portfolio, and served as outside general counsel to growth-stage companies.

Outside of Foundry, Jason enjoys shopping at his wife’s candy shop, reading his son’s fiction, watching his daughter’s high school theatrical performances, and skiing. He also is a landlocked sailor, always looking for opportunities to get to a coast and out on an ocean.
