PETER BOYCE II
Investor, General Catalyst Partners
“The power of technology lies in its ability to create, democratize, and expand our notions of human livelihood.”
I am excited to support product-focused entrepreneurs and it’s a privilege to work with our investment team who champion this.
Since joining General Catalyst in 2013, I’ve focused on making early stage investments & work closely with portfolio companies including: Cadre, Major League Hacking, Mark43, Outdoor Voices, Ro, and Rebag. Other investments I have supported include Circle, Freebird, Giphy, Jet.com (acquired by Walmart), and Workflow (acquired by Apple).
In addition, I co-founded & oversee Rough Draft Ventures, through which General Catalyst invests in promising university entrepreneurs. With a portfolio of over 100 startups we’ve backed on college campuses, RDV has expanded access to capital and mentorship for student entrepreneurs across the country. It’s incredibly rewarding to work with first-time CEOs as I am passionate about empowering high-potential founders early in their careers.
I graduated from Harvard College with an A.B. in Applied Mathematics and Secondary in Computer Science. While on campus, I co-founded Harvard Ventures & HackHarvard: two student-led organizations that build community around engineers and future founders. I grew up in NYC and am a proud alum of Stuyvesant High School.
