Partner, Red Swan Ventures
So, what’s a Red Swan? It’s a great company that most of us never saw coming, which is what Red Swan Ventures, where Will Peng is a partner, is all about. Since 2011, they’ve invested in 45+ companies at the seed/early stage, including Warby Parker, Birchbox, Bonobos, Hailo, and Wanelo.
As for Peng himself, he worked on product (management, UX + IxD + IA, growth + analytics, front-end dev) at drop.io (acquired by Facebook) and Hot Potato (acquired by Facebook). And in venture capital at Raptor Ventures, RRE Ventures, and Bertelsmann Digital Media Investments.
This Red Swan is a rare bird.
Selected Investments/Boards: Birchbox, Chloe + Isabel, Hailo, Warby Parker, Keychain, Hing, SeatGeek, LayerVault.
