When I saw David Skok's name on a recent Ulitzer author's page I was pleasantly surprised. David has been one of the key figures in the technology space for the past two decades, in particular with his venture capital activities. Throughout his long career, he successfully launched a number of companies. He has been a general partner at Matrix Partners since 2001.
Last time I mentioned his name in one of my blog entries was here in 2004.
I had an email exchange with David in October 2007 when we started architecting our revolutionary Ulitzer new media platform.
David introduced me to Christian, a trusted enterprise developer, who provided invaluable input that helped us in our selection of a development platform for Ulitzer.
Roughly one year after Ulitzer's beta launch, it is nice to have David's "For Entrepreneurs" blog syndicated on various Ulitzer topic sites.
Here is David's bio from his author page:
David Skok joined Matrix Partners as a General Partner in May 2001. He has a wealth of experience running companies. He started his first company in 1977 at age 22. Since then he has founded a total of four separate companies and performed one turn-around. Three of these companies went public.
Skok joined Matrix from SilverStream Software, which he founded in June 1996. Prior to its July 2002 acquisition by Novell, SilverStream was a public company that had reached a revenue run rate in excess of $100M, with approximately 800 employees and offices in more than 20 countries around the world. His work as a value added investor is best known for helping JBoss take its Open Source business to a successful exit with its sale to Red Hat, and for helping AppIQ, Tabblo and Diligent Technologies, which have all had successful exits, from their inceptions to their acquisitions by HP and IBM.
He serves on the boards of Digium (makers of the very popular Asterisk Open Source PBX/telephony software), CloudSwitch, Enservio, OpenSpan, Solidworks, VideoIQ, and HubSpot. In addition to his broad focus on enterprise software, he is specifically focused on the areas of cloud computing, Open Source, Software as a Service (SaaS), marketing automation, virtualization, storage, and data center automation.
