Andrew wrote a post yesterday about leaving Spark Capital.
While this was known to many of us for the last few months, seeing the words written out yesterday made it real I suppose.
I first met Andrew when he was an associate at Union Square Ventures. We worked together on the Tumblr investment and also another company called Bug Labs. Both in NYC.
A few years later when Andrew called me to say he was leaving USV/NYC and heading to Boston because of his wife’s medical residency program. I am pretty sure we made him an offer on the spot. If not, maybe a few minutes later.
From the earliest days at Spark, Andrew always made it his work to serve the entrepreneur and to be a guiding light at our firm.
Over the last decade of working with him, I know Andrew to be one of the smartest and more importantly finest people I know. I am grateful to call him my partner and will always be part of Spark.
Thank you, Andrew for everything.
