I first met Biz in 2007, shortly after I first signed up as a Twitter user.
About a year later I joined the board of his company when we made our initial investment
Since that first meeting, I have routinely been blown away by Biz’s creative instincts and understanding of the social web. His tireless efforts to tell the story and promise of Twitter has been inspirational. I have learned much from his obsession with company culture and importance of mission for a young company. And his instincts about brand and community are simply extraordinary.
My partners and I have also been impressed with Biz’s efforts outside of the world of startups, specifically his philanthropic efforts and the work of his foundation. And like you, we are looking forward to the rebirth of Obvious Corporation.
Today, we are thrilled to announce that Biz is going to assist our firm, Spark Capital, as strategic Advisor. In this role, Biz will help us think through and evaluate new investment opportunities. Additionally he will provide us with valuable insight about our current portfolio companies as well.
I could not be any happier about this and I’m delighted to share it now with all of you.
