US venture firm General Catalyst Partners has brought on Yuchun Lee as a partner in its entrepreneur in residence (EIR) programme to focus on software opportunities.
Lee, who co-founded Unica and is a former IBM executive, will work with the firm’s growth equity team to identify and build technology based companies with a focus on enterprise software and data analytics.
EIRs at General Catalyst are entrepreneurs who play leadership roles in transforming high growth businesses and Lee will join current members Paul Verrochi, Rob Gierkink, Charlie Baker, Tad Elmer, Chris Heim and Dan Mayleben.
Prior to General Catalyst, Lee served as vice president and general manager of IBM’s Enterprise Marketing Management Group, with a global responsibility focusing on the needs of Chief Marketing Officers.
David Fialkow, managing director and co-founder of General Catalyst Partners, said, “Yuchun has a superb breadth of experience successfully leading companies and organisations at all different stages in their lifecycle – from a bootstrapped start-up through its high-growth phase and to IPO, and through its acquisition by IBM.
“With a career leading technology-based organizations spanning nearly thirty years, he brings invaluable knowledge and perspective to our firm, and we’re honoured to have him as our partner.”
