We had such a great time hosting this week’s guest on The GridRyan McIntyre. Ryan is a co-founder of the Boulder-based venture capital firm, Foundry Group, and currently sits on SendGrid’s board of directors.

From starting one of the original internet search engines Excite.com with his Stanford classmates, to dipping his toe into venture capitalism with Mobius Venture Capital (where he met his current partners for Foundry Group!), Ryan has been on quite a journey to get to where he is today.

Tune in below to hear about:

  • How Ryan went from software engineer, to founder, to venture capitalist
  • Foundry Group’s relationship with SendGrid and where it all started
  • Ryan’s take on Colorado’s tech scene
  • And so much more!

Thanks for tuning in and we’ll see you next time!
