San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) May 15, 2013
The National Venture Capital Association (NVCA) today announced it has elected Josh Green, general partner of Mohr Davidow Ventures, to serve as the 2013-2014 Chairman of the Board of Directors. The appointment was made official at the association’s annual meeting -- VentureScape 2013 -- in San Francisco. Mr. Green’s one-year term begins immediately.
As he assumes leadership of the country’s pre-eminent venture capital association, Mr. Green highlighted the importance of venture capital investment to the economic well-being of the country and to the vibrancy of the start-up world.
“It is a privilege to lead the NVCA at a time when we can have a significant impact on a truly dynamic startup ecosystem,” said Green. “We have much work to accomplish, and an outstanding story to tell. The venture capital industry is committed to the long-term global competitiveness of our country and, with our startup company partners, we are in this game to change the world. In the coming year, the NVCA will remain focused on harnessing our industry’s collective voice to advocate, inform and educate on policies that support these critical efforts.”
Josh Green is preceded by Ray Rothrock, general partner at Venrock, who in his role as NVCA chair led the association through the 2012 presidential elections and helped build membership at a time when the industry continues to consolidate.
“Ray’s energy, acumen, and drive have been a tremendous asset to the venture capital industry,” said Mark Heesen, president of NVCA. “His nuanced leadership has been instrumental in skillfully navigating the legislative and regulatory landscape, while simultaneously looking out on the horizon to the future of the industry and the association. His legacy will be carried forward by Josh Green, whose expertise and vision is poised to serve NVCA very well as we enter a year of change. As we celebrate
