We are thrilled to announce the addition of two new Venture Partners to the FirstMark team: Rick Nucci and Josh Abramson. Both are tremendous entrepreneurs and bring great industry insights, operating experience, and deep relationships to the FirstMark community.
Rick was the Founder and CTO of Boomi, which defined and led a new segment as the first cloud integration platform-as-a-service. FirstMark backed Boomi in 2008, which rapidly scaled and was eventually acquired by Dell in 2010 in an outstanding exit. At Dell, Rick served as the GM of Boomi, where he continued to grow the organization into the industry leader it is today. With 15+ years of experience as an entrepreneur, CTO, and leader, we are fortunate to have Rick rejoin the FirstMark family.
Josh is a serial entrepreneur who co-founded College Humor while still in college and quickly built it into one of the largest and fastest-growing comedy sites on the Internet. While at College Humor, Josh also co-founded Vimeo and Busted Tees, which have quickly grown into industry-leading video and e-commerce businesses. Josh is a mentor and friend to entrepreneurs throughout the New York tech ecosystem.
These latest additions to the team are another milestone in what has been a great year for FirstMark and our community. We are excited to welcome Rick and Josh on our mission to partner with the best entrepreneurs in the world.
