Colin is a founder and partner at Two Sigma Ventures, drawing on a lifelong obsession with technology and gadgets. Though he never got any good at programming, Colin has spent his career working on the business side at and for technology companies. He joined Two Sigma in 2005 to try to help the company grow in a variety of ways, and in 2011 started building Two Sigma Ventures. Prior to 2005, Colin was a technology investment banker and corporate strategist, and first came to New York to spend a summer working at Doubleclick.
Colin was born in Dublin, Ireland and moved to the Bay Area at age 8, which helped to accelerate the technology fanboy tendencies. He fondly recalls summer internships at San Francisco startups in the late ’90s. Colin graduated with a dual BA in Economics and Law, Jurisprudence, and Social Thought from Amherst College.
Colin lives in Brooklyn with his wife and three kids.
