Komisar

I am an ardent entrepreneur, mentor, teacher, writer and investor. I have been a partner at Kleiner Perkins Caufield and Byers, a venerable Silicon Valley Venture Capital firm, since the early 2000s and before that was a "Virtual CEO", a role I serendipitously created in the mid 1990s. At KPCB I have been privileged to work with amazing people like Tony Fadell and Matt Rogers at Nest and John Amster and Geof Baker at RPX, two of our most significant successes, and a host of other wonderful entrepreneurs. As Virtual CEO I partnered with founders to help develop them as leaders and build their dream businesses. I was fortunate to work with Steve Perlman to create WebTV, Mike Ramsay to create TiVo, and Denis Whittle and Mari Kuraishi to create Global Giving, amongst others.

I also taught entrepreneurship at Stanford with Tom Byers, the founder of the Stanford Technology Ventures Program. We taught together for almost a decade. My operational experience includes serving as CEO of Lucas Arts and Crystal Dynamics, CFO and VP of Operations at GO Corporation, and Co-Founder and Vice President of Corporate Affairs for Claris Corporation. Before that I was Senior Counsel at Apple Computer after a career in private practice focusing on technology law and litigation.

I serve or have served on the advisory boards of Roadtrip Nation, an amazing group of people who provide knowledge and inspiration for young people to achieve their potential, the University of California, Santa Barbara's Institute of Energy Efficiency, super charging research and development on ways to save energy, resources and the planet, and Orrick's Women's Leadership Board, working to empower women leaders in the law.
