Tyler re-joined Menlo Ventures as a Principal in 2014 and was promoted to Partner in 2017. He invests in both B2B and B2C markets. His interest is backing talented entrepreneurs who are building delightful and disruptive technology enabled services and products that are sticky to the end user or continuously replenished via a channel. He loves annuities, network effects, liquidity moats, systems of records, and high frequency transactional and replenishment businesses that keep customers around via convenience or habit – ideally forever. Tyler muses that his goal is to back a business that one day Warren Buffet would like to buy because of its enduring value. He knows he's running out of time.
Tyler looks for these types of opportunities across a wide variety of markets & verticals. He finds a lot of inspiration in complex industries, like Fintech, but he also gets excited by opportunities in vertical and horizontal SAAS, branded commerce, marketplaces, and data networks for a variety of industries.
Tyler’s investments (since returning to Menlo) include: Carta (fka e-Shares), PillPack (acquired by Amazon), Bread Finance, BlueVine, Qualia, Everlaw, HomeLight, Alloy.ai, Envoy, BitPay, Stance, Realtyshares, FiveStars, and tCell.io.
Previously, Tyler was an associate at Accel Partners in London, where he sourced investments in Aorato (sold to Microsoft), GoCardless, FlyWire, and Calastone. He spent a lot of time in France, Scandinavia, and Israel looking for investment opportunities.
Tyler’s first job out of college was at Menlo Ventures, where he was an analyst for 2.5 years, and sourced investments in EdgeCast Networks (sold to Verizon), DataXu, Dstillery, and ReadyForce.
Tyler has a B.A in International Relations from Stanford University. In his free time, he enjoys playing chess (improving, but still consistently beaten by his older brother), playing golf, skiing, travelling, and reading.
