Tony Conrad

Partner, True Ventures

I’m a cofounder of & Sphere. I’m also a Partner at True Ventures where I get to work with amazingly talented founders from companies like WordPress, MakerBot, HODINKEE, High Fidelity, Connectifier, Glowforge, Typekit, Pluralsight, GrowthHackers & Blue Bottle Coffee. I’m a personal investor in WordPress, Slack, Lowercase Capital, Ne Timeas (Flour+Water, Trick Dog, Salumeria, Central Kitchen), Samovar and August. I’m a board member of the Tony Hawk Foundation, an advisor to SF based Noise Pop and a T40 National Co-Chair of Technology for Obama. I genuinely have parking karma but my drip coffee skills are a bit overrated. I do communicate well with animals, I’m a sometimes triathlete, a Cubs fan, former bowler, wannabee surfer, lover of languages, art and architecture. I grew up in a small Indiana farming community. Since, l’ve lived in New York, New Delhi, Jakarta, Chicago, Paris and San Francisco. I’ve worked a lot of jobs not listed on my resume including short stints as a baseball umpire, basketball camp counselor, pharmacy stock person, high school sports reporter, book bindery glue machine operator, janitor, college newspaper ad salesman & yogurt merchandiser to name a few. It’s been an exciting journey so far!
