Welcoming Jason Kilar, Richard Tom and the Vessel team to the Benchmark family

June 24, 2014:

v2Today Benchmark is excited to announce that we will be partners with Jason Kilar and Richard Tom on their next exciting project — Vessel. Working with amazing entrepreneurs is the number one reason we enjoy venture capital, and rarely do you have the opportunity to work with a team that has a track record like these two. While they are not planning to disclose any specifics today about the company, you can rest assured that they plan to bring their amazing product instincts and cultural leadership that were at the heart of Hulu’s success.

We are also excited to be partnering again with Jeff Bezos and the team at Bezos Expeditions, as well as David Sze and the team at Greylock. Previously we’ve worked with Bezos Expeditions on investments including Twitter, Uber, and Nextdoor, and alongside Greylock with Nextdoor, Edmodo, Zuora and recently Docker.

Not much more information than that right now, but of course there will be plenty to talk about in the future. We look forward to an incredible journey.
