BIOGRAPHY

 

 

Bruce Gibney is a venture capitalist and writer.  After briefly practicing as a securities litigator, he started his career in finance at a global macro hedge fund, first as a portfolio manager and later as a managing director, helping expand the fund from $35 million to over $7.5 billion at the time of his departure. 

 

Bruce has also been a venture investor since the late 1990s, when he invested in a start-up founded by his college roommate; that company became PayPal (which went public in 2002 and was subsequently acquired by eBay for $1.5 billion). 

 

Bruce was most recently a partner at Peter Thiel’s Founders Fund, where he and his colleagues were early investors in Facebook, Spotify, Palantir Technologies, Elon Musk’s SpaceX, AirBnB, Lyft, and others. 

 

He now invests for himself and selected private clients.  Bruce lives in San Francisco and New York City.  His forthcoming book, on the extent and causes of American economic stagnation, will be published by Hachette in 2017.
