Warren Weiss

At Foundation Capital, Warren focuses primarily on investments in emerging software companies — both licensed and software as a service — as well as on those in the Cleantech industry. He currently serves on the boards of CliQr Technologies, ForgeRock, InterAct, Moxie Software, Rearden Commerce, SilkRoad Technologies, Silver Spring Networks, and Visier. Past investments include eMeter (acquired by Siemens) and MarkMonitor (acquired by Thomson Reuters). Catching emerging technologies and superstar entrepreneurs early is Warren's passion. His close ties with leading universities and research labs give him a window into innovations in their purest form, and he cherishes the chance to work with the smartest minds in business, whether first-timers or Nobel-Prize winners. His involvement with on-demand software companies and Cleantech began years before investing in those areas became a mainstream event. Warren was named to the 2012 Forbes Midas List of Technology's Top Investors for his work with Silver Spring Networks. Warren joined Foundation Capital in 2002 with more than 25 years experience in the software industry, including time as president and CEO of four public and private software companies. Most recently, he was president and CEO of Asera, a real-time software solutions provider. Previously, Warren served as president and CEO of Prism Solutions (IBM) during the company's transition from data warehousing tools provider to business intelligence application deliverer. Prior to that, Warren was president of SQRIBE Technologies (now Oracle) and earlier, president and CEO of SMI. Warren has held numerous other senior executive positions at Next Software (Apple), Continuum (Computer Sciences Corporation) and Management Science America (INFOR). He holds a BS from Western Illinois University.
