Harsh Patel, formerly president of big data analytics firm Bina Technologies, has joined seed and early stage venture fund Claremont Creek Ventures as an investment team director.
Patel is a former general partner at RRE Ventures and In-Q-Tel, with his career also including work as an angel investor and mentor to seed state companies, Claremont Creek announced Jan. 15.
“Our portfolio continued to exhibit great momentum in 2013. We had a $350M exit in EcoATM, invested in 13 companies, and a substantial number of our portfolio companies closed strong new financings,” said Nat Goldhaber, Claremont Creek co-founder and managing director.
“[Claremont Creek] invests in companies that bring the power of mobility, big data analytics and user-centric design to large industry sectors that were historically slower to adopt IT-driven change,” Patel said.
