Managing Partner, Union Square Ventures
Brad Burnham began his career in information technology by taking a job at AT&T. After working in sales, marketing and business development for several years, Burnham created and was named CEO of Echo Logic, AT&T’s first venture, which inspired the creation of the independent venture capital branch of the company, called AT&T Ventures.
When Echo Logic was sold in 1993, Burnham joined AT&T Ventures as an Executive in Residence. In 1994, Burnham became a Principal. Two years later, he went on to become a General Partner. A few notable investments that Burnham was responsible for include Argon Networks, Audible, Avesta Technologies, Classic Sports Network, Multex Systems, Physicians Online and Paytrust.
During his time with AT&T Ventures, Burnham helped co-found TACODA, Inc., which was purchased by AOL/Time Warner in 1997. Burnham enjoyed working on the progression of TACODA so much that it inspired him to form Union Square Ventures with Fred Wilson, and where he is currently a managing partner. He also currently serves on the boards of Tumblr, Stack Exchange, DuckDuckGo, DuoLingo, Flurry, GetGlue, SimulMedia, Meetup, YieldMo, Pinch Media, UpCompany and Bug Labs.
Selected Investments/Boards: Tumblr, StackExchange, Meetup, GetGlue, SimulMedia, Bug Labs, YieldMo
