Shawn Carolan  

Managing Director, Menlo Ventures

After debuting on the Midas List last year, Menlo Ventures Managing Partner Shawn Carolan climbed higher on the list this year thanks to Uber's continued success. Carolan was the first venture investor in Siri (acquired by Apple in April 2010), and backed TeleNav, social gaming platform IMVU, PlaySpan (acquired by Visa in March 2011), and digital video deals such as Roku, YuMe and CinemaNow. In addition to being a venture capitalist, Carolan is founder and now CEO of productivity app Handle which he incubated at Menlo Ventures. He says the nights he's spent sleeping on a futon in his startup's HQ gives him sympathy for entrepreneurs. When he's not working, Carolan spends time at Crossfit, on his motorcycle, and with his three children.
