Ed Fernandez

Ed Fernandez is a seasoned mobile industry veteran with more than two decades of experience combined. He possesses expertise in Venture Capital, Investments, Strategy, GoToMarket, Mobile Platforms, Wearables, Data Analytics, Machine Learning, AI, and Telco. He is a member of the Young Presidents' Organization (YPO), a worldwide non for profit association of leaders and entrepreneurs under 45. He is Partner & Co-founder of Naiss, a venture capital boutique in Palo Alto, focusing on technology based start ups and early stage companies, preparing them for M&A and IPO in alternative markets. As a VC practitioner, he started in 2012 as investor and venture partner in a $10MM Start Up venture fund with 12 companies in portfolio. He is board observer & advisor to some of them. Ed's first computer was a Commodore 64 back in the 80s, a 64Kb RAM machine running on a 1 MHz CPU. Already an avid assembler and programmer, he became an amateur hacker at that time. Ed lives in Palo Alto with his family. He is mission driven, and a parallel multitasker with nerd traits: curious, ENTP, self-made, resilient, highly functional and finisher of Madrid's marathon (all a euphemism for modern ADHD).
