Kleiner Perkins Caufield Byers Adds Mamoon Hamid to Leadership Team

Venture capital firm Kleiner Perkins Caufield Byers has added Mamoon Hamid to its leadership team.

Hamid will be joining the firm as a general partner and managing member. He has a track record of investing in many of the leading enterprise startups of the last decade – including early investments in Slack, Box, Yammer, Intercom and Netskope, where he also served on the board of directors.
Hamid spent the last six years as the co-founder of Social Capital, a venture capital fund based in Palo Alto, CA, where he led the firm’s venture practice.
Before that, he was a partner at USVP.
Hamid started his Silicon Valley career at Xilinx where he spent six years in various engineering and business roles. He holds a B.S. in Electrical Engineering from Purdue University, an M.S. from Stanford University and an MBA from Harvard Business School.

The addition of Hamid is aimed at enhancing the firm’s 45-year legacy in early stage investing, complementing the existing venture team of Wen Hsieh, Eric Feng and veterans Beth Seidenberg and Ted Schlein.
