At CRV, Gur has continued the trend of helping build great companies by backing entrepreneurs at Altius Education, Blippy, and Progress Financial from the earliest stages, while also getting involved in the firm’s investments in TwitterTwitter and Scribd. And those entrepreneurs love him. Because he’s walked in their shoes, Gur “gets it.” We’ve heard him described countless times as fantastic, extremely helpful, and always available. He has shown the chops to be a great investor, and we’re watching eagerly to see what he does next.
