Om Malik, founder of Giga Omni Media and editor of GigaOM is not only an entrepreneur and a blogger, but now he is a venture partner. Earlier this summer, Jon Callaghan, Phil Black, and John Burke invited Om Malik to join True Ventures as a venture partner.
“The move will not take any time away from my work at GigaOM. What it will do, however, is give me a chance to closely observe the venture business, which could lead me to one day being a venture capitalist myself. And it is yet another way for me to indulge in my love of startups,” stated Malik. “Though I am extremely picky as to which startup I write about, I love meeting them all. Why? Because ideas fascinate me. People amaze me. So this is just an extension of the same enthusiasm, but from
a different dimension.”
Other board members of True Ventures includes Tony Conrad, CEO of Sphere and Toni Schneider, CEO of Automattic. True Ventures is also an investor in GigaOm.
