Stu Phillips

Stu Phillips, the intense Brit who has been pretty secretive since leaving the big Silicon Valley venture capital firm USVP, has made it official.

He has started a smaller firm to invest in early start-ups. Now he says Robert Goldberg has left IdeaLab to join him. And there’s a Web site.

Phillips has invested in a lot of communications companies, while Goldberg helped manage investments in Snap, Insider Pages, X1, New.net/Vendare Media, Desktop Factory, Evolution Robotics, and Energy Innovations.
