Warren Weiss is the General Partner at Foundation Capital. At Foundation Capital, Warren focuses primarily on investments in emerging software companies — both licensed and software as a service — as well as on those in the Cleantech industry. He currently serves on the boards of CLiQr Technologies, Cyphort, ForgeRock, Moxie Software, SilkRoad Technologies, Silver Spring Networks, Trufa and Visier. Catching emerging technologies and superstar entrepreneurs early is Warren’s passion. Warren's close ties with leading universities and research labs give him a window into innovations in their purest form, and he cherishes the chance to work with the smartest minds in business, whether first-timers or Nobel-Prize winners. Warren's involvement with on-demand software companies and Cleantech began years before investing in those areas became a mainstream event. Warren joined Foundation Capital in 2002 with more than 25 years experience in the software industry, including time as President and Chief Executive Officer at four public and private software companies.
Most recently, Warren was President and Chief Executive Officer at Asera, a real-time software solutions provider.
Previously, Warren served as President and Chief Executive Officer at Prism Solutions during the company’s transition from data warehousing tools provider to business intelligence application deliverer.
Prior to that, Warren was President of SQRIBE Technologies (now Hyperion) and earlier, President and Chief Executive Officer at SMI.
Warren has held numerous other senior executive positions at Next Software (Apple), Continuum (Computer Sciences Corporation) and Dun & Bradstreet Software.
Warren holds a B.S. degree from Western Illinois University.
