CapitalG’s Next Generation: Alex Nichols, Mo Jomaa, and Jane Alexander
CapitalG was founded a decade ago to empower entrepreneurs with Alphabet and Google’s unparalleled expertise in growth. 16 IPOs (11 in the last five years alone!), 9 significant M&A exits, and 60 incredible investment partnerships later, we’ve been privileged to support the growth journeys of some of the most inspiring entrepreneurs and transformative tech companies in the world, such as Stripe, CrowdStrike, Duolingo, Databricks, Zscaler, Airbnb and Freshworks. Our work has only been possible because we’ve been fortunate enough to attract, develop and retain one of the hardest working, brightest, most founder-centric, and compassionate teams in venture.
Today we are thrilled to congratulate three outstanding investors on becoming CapitalG’s newest partners. Mo Jomaa and Alex Nichols are being promoted after six years with the firm, and Jane Alexander is joining us as the newest member of the CapitalG family.
