NEA takes on former North Bridge investor as partner


Global venture capital firm New Enterprise Associates (NEA) has hired former North Bridge Venture Partners investor Dayna Grayson as a partner.

Grayson will work with NEA’s East Coast technology team, focusing on early-stage investments in enterprise and consumer internet companies.

“Dayna is a talented investor who is intensely focused on fostering entrepreneurship and has deep roots in the East Coast venture capital ecosystem,” said NEA managing general partner Peter Barris.

“As NEA increases our investment focus on thriving technology and life sciences hubs spanning the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic and Midwest, we believe Dayna will be an outstanding addition to the team and we’re very pleased to welcome her to NEA.”

Prior to joining NEA, Grayson was an investor at North Bridge in Boston, where she focused on seed and early-stage consumer internet and Software-as-a-Service investments.

An active member of the startup communities along the East Coast including Boston and New York, she previously led product design at Blackbaud, a global provider of software to nonprofit organisations, and was a consultant at Cap Gemini Ernst and Young.
