Welcome. Here is a little more about me.

 

I love investing in and working with great people. Today, I do this as a partner at TRUE VENTURES, a silicon valley based venture capital firm that invests in early-stage technology startups. To date, True has helped more than 300 companies launch and scale their businesses, creating over 10,000 jobs worldwide.

I host two podcasts, the KEVIN ROSE SHOW where I explore how to reach peak personal and professional performance while living a minimal and balanced life, and FOUNDATION, where we interview world-class entrepreneurs, builders, and investors to tease out practical knowledge you can use to improve your business and professional life. If you'd like to keep up with my new episodes, as well as my favorite articles and odd obsessions, you can subscribe to my once-a-month NEWSLETTER. 

Previously, as an entrepreneur, I founded the social news site DIGGintermittent fasting app, ZERO, and the meditation app, OAK. I was also a General Partner at GOOGLE VENTURES, where I invested in companies like RIPPLE, BLUE BOTTLEMEDIUM, and NEXTDOOR. Prior to that, I began my investing career as an Angel investor in Twitter, Facebook, and Square.
 

I have a wonderful PARTNER in life. Together we have two little girls and mini-labradoodle. I love them all beyond words.

 

I believe in PLAYING THROUGHOUT LIFE, trying and failing over and over at the many things that pique my interest.


You can also find me on INSTAGRAM, and TWITTER.
