Steve GoldCo-Founder & Managing Partner at 3Spoke Capital
Steve Gold is Co-founder and Managing Partner of 3SPOKE and has responsibility for all aspects of the management and strategic direction of the firm while chairing the Investment Committee.
Steve is one of the early pioneers of the private stock lending market, having long been involved in managing the liquidity challenges being faced by individual stakeholders of leading private venture-backed companies. As these companies remain privately held for increasingly longer periods of time, demand for liquidity has increased exponentially. Responding to this growing challenge in the venture ecosystem, Steve conceptualized the strategy of lending to shareholders in 2012 and co-founded VSL Partners in early 2014 to institutionalize the strategy and launch his first dedicated fund.
Steve has led investments in Box (NYSE:BOX), DialPad, DocuSign (NASDAQ:DOCU), GitHub (acquired:MSFT), Mesosphere, MongoDB (NASDAQ:MDB), One Medical, Pinterest, SOASTA (acquired:Akamai), Telogis (acquired:Verizon), and Zuora (NYSE:ZUO).
