Original Snapchat investor adds new partner
Will Kohler has quietly joined Lightspeed Venture Partners, the Silicon Valley-based venture capital firm whose deals have included Snapchat and Nest Labs. His focus will be on investment opportunities in the areas of SaaS, enterprise IT and cloud-based services.
Kohler previously was a Boston-area partner with Canada-based Summerhill Venture Partners where he led investments in such companies as C2FO, Cargo Metrics, and Sonian Networks. Before that, he spent seven years with Prism VentureWorks.
