Lyle Fong

Partner, London

Serial entrepreneur, focusing on early-mid stage investments

Lyle is a serial entrepreneur and, having founded successful enterprise software and gaming companies, knows all too well the rollercoaster ride that founders experience.

One of Lyle’s companies was Lithium, a social media software company acquired by Vista in 2017. Before it was acquired, Lithium raised more than $180m in funding, made four acquisitions, grew the team to more than 300 employees and revenue to more $100 million. Lyle has also been a visiting partner at startup accelerator Y Combinator, and an active investor and mentor to early stage companies. Lyle has relocated from San Francisco to London for this role, bringing Silicon Valley expertise to the London startup ecosystem.
