Board of Directors

Founders and Former Community Board Members
This community was initially formed in 2013 by some of the earliest Platform leaders in the VC world.  It all started with a few people getting together for breakfast periodically and has now grown into this global community of hundreds of people leading platform efforts at their firms.  The community would not be possible if not for some of these incredible individuals who helped launch the idea of this group and dedicated time and energy to ensuring that it was a valuable resource to their peers.
