Mark Sherman

Managing Director


Mark has been passionate about quality products and leaders in the software industry for a long time.

After business school, he took Intuit public and sold Contact Software (ACT!) to Symantec and he was hooked.

At Telstra Ventures, he has backed Box, DocuSign, Ooyala, Elemental and Springboard which are all leaders in their space.

Previously at Hidden Lion Partners, he invested on underbanked companies, Global Analytics, Zebit, and PayActiv, all of which are leading their markets.

Previously as a General Partner at Battery, he led its early investment in Coupa, the $5B SaaS procurement leader and Neoteris, SSL VPN company, both leaders in their markets.

Previously, he led Robertson Stephens’ software business, where he took BEA, Siebel, Concur, Quest Software, and Aspect Development to their multi-billion dollar outcomes and were leaders in the day.

He is interested in trailblazing companies that do not fit neatly in industry sector boxes. In addition to the companies above he works with Airspace Technologies, Boomtown, Cumulus, Matrixx, NS1, Singular, Skillz, Uhana, and Zimperium.
