Rip Empson
Rip Empson is a writer, explorer, eager learner and part-time rabble-rouser -- whatever that means. Today, you can find him working as a senior associate at Morgenthaler Ventures and Canvas Venture Fund. He works in a marketing, PR and advisory capacity both for the Morgenthaler, Canvas and their portfolio companies (like Lending Club, Doximity, Evernote, Check and MuleSoft to name a few), and also spends time on the investment side, helping the Canvas team find face-meltingly amazing startups. Before venture capitalizing, Rip spent nearly four years at TechCrunch, the leading technology publication and media dynamo, where he covered startups. Within the Whacky World Of Startups, Rip focused most of his attention on chronicling the rise of technology and ambush of innovation on health and education. But between you and me, I hear he's especially passionate about any and all forms of disrupting -- particularly those that are disrupting the disruptable disruptions -- and anyone or anything that can quench his insatiable thirst for disrupt-a-lutions. Rip has been quoted by various people at various times – some of them publications and probably super wicked famous people referencing his work – some of them people mistakenly re-tweeting him thinking he’s Rip Torn. Is he a budding national treasure? You said it, not him. As to what he’s doing right now? He’s either transferring his life savings from Scramble With Friends tokens to Bitcoin or vice versa. Hard to say, really. CrunchBase profile →
