In 1993 Ben founded one of the first e-commerce companies and the first cost-per-click portal, Fashionmall.com, which he took public in 1999. He spent the 2000s founding and acquiring companies in the consumer Internet and e-commerce space before becoming a full-fledged investor where his streak of identifying great opportunities continued – as an early investor in companies like DropCam, LendingClub, Kabbage, and Zenefits. He led seed investments for TriplePoint Ventures, co-founded Canvas Ventures, and most recently as Venture Partner at one of the most storied venture firms, NEA.
