In this week’s episode of Ask A VC, we have Greylock’s newest partner, Simon Rothman, joining us in the studio. You can submit questions for our guests either in the comments or here and we’ll ask them during the show.
Rothman, who was recently promoted from EIR to Partner on Greylock’s consumer investment team, was formerly at eBay. He joined eBay in 1999 when it was still a small, U.S. collectibles auction business and helped scale eBay to nearly 200 million users generating over $40 billion in merchandise sales. While at eBay, Rothman led U.S. operations and also founded eBay Motors, which he built into a $14 billion a year global business. Following eBay he also founded Glyde, an e-commerce marketplace for electronics and more. And Rothman served as a board member of and adviser to Tesla Motors.
With Greylock’s new $100 million commitment to investing in marketplaces, we’re curious to hear where Rothman is bullish when it comes to networks.
