Rob's bio:

I am a cofounder of NextView Ventures, a seed stage investment firm focused on internet enabled innovation. I try to spend as much time as possible working with young entrepreneurs and investing in businesses that are trying to solve important problems for everyday people.   I was previously a venture capitalist at Spark Capital, a leading venture firm focused on the intersection of media, technology, and entertainment. I helped to launch and coordinate Start@Spark, a seed stage investment program targeted at early-stage companies in the New York and Boston areas.  Before joining Spark Capital, I worked at Ebay, as the North America Business Unit owner for "Finding". In this role, I helped launch over 20 products that significantly enhanced Ebay's search, browse, and merchandising capabilities.  Previously, I was a Senior Associate at The Parthenon Group, a boutique strategy consulting firm. I was a member of the firm's Private Equity practice, and focused on the consumer and retail industries. Additionally, I have also held product management roles at Fidelity Investments, BzzAgent, and helped to found, one of the first social networking sites outside of the United States.  I've been blessed to have a wonderful wife and daughter and spend most of my free time with them. I'm also a founding member and on the board of Highrock Church in Brookline, MA. Specialties: Internet and new media, venture capital, product marketing, consumer marketing, strategic due diligence, consumer finance.
