(Manchester, N.H., Jan. 18) — The world of technology investing involves a complex web of stakeholders. Founders, venture capitalists and investment partners all have their own priorities, but they share a need to constantly forge new connections.
York IE, a vertically integrated strategic growth and investment firm for technology companies, today announced it has hired Tom Anderson to grow its world-class investment network.
As vice president of ecosystem and investor relations, Anderson will develop and manage relationships with current and prospective investment partners, venture capital and private equity firms and York IE’s portfolio companies.
“York IE was founded on the idea that traditional VC and private equity can be better for everyone involved,” said Kyle York, CEO, York IE. “Tom is an accomplished investor and strategist with a unique ability to build and foster relationships. He’ll help spark new connections and ensure everyone knows what it means to be a part of the York IE ecosystem.”
Anderson will also be responsible for:
- connecting portfolio companies to outside investors;
- introducing new investment partners to the York IE investment syndicate;
- hosting meetings, events and presentations for prospective investors and partners;
- building content and tools for investors within York IE’s Fuel platform; and
- helping other VC and PE firms offer York IE’s advisory to their portfolios to operationally support their strategic growth.
