Montage Capital (http://www.montagecapital.com), a leading growth capital firm for capital-efficient technology and life science companies, announced that Eric Gonzales has joined the firm as Managing Director. Eric brings extensive venture capital experience as a former General Partner at DCM, where his most notable successes were first round investments in Beijing-based social network UUme (acquired by Renren), telecom services provider Inteliquent and enterprise software company Coradiant (acquired by BMC Software). “Eric’s strong equity investing and fund management background complements our team extremely well,” notes Mike Rose, co-founder and Managing Director of Montage. “Eric has jumped right in to solidify our unique market positioning, strengthen our deal sourcing and portfolio management capabilities, and manage our relationships and communications with investors.”
In addition to his investing experience, Eric brings a broad range of entrepreneurial and operational skills to Montage. Eric previously founded and led social gaming startup Ujogo and can relate firsthand to the issues faced by the entrepreneurs in Montage’s portfolio. He also gained several years of operating experience in product management, first at Hewlett-Packard, and then during Cisco Systems’ rapid growth years in the 1990s, where he managed some of the company’s fastest growing and largest revenue-contributing products. This diverse set of experiences has enabled Eric to develop a keen ability to evaluate company value and operating performance, which will be useful in selecting high quality investment candidates for Montage.
Gunjan Sinha, Chairman of Montage portfolio company MetricStream, commented, “I am extremely pleased that Eric has joined the Montage team. His wealth of investing and entrepreneurial experience has already been quite helpful to MetricStream as we drive our growth objectives.”
