Benchmark To Lose Two Big Name Partners

from the bye-bye dept

As the dot com layoffs continue and even big name (Tim Koogle) dot commers are losing their jobs – now the focus may be shifting to the venture capitalists. Rumors are going around that two of Benchmarks better known partners, Bill Gurley and David Beirne are leaving (though, it’s not clear how hard they’re being pushed). Beirne was the main partner profiled in the book eBoys, but he’s not looking so sharp any more. Gurley, who was high profile when he as at Hummer Winblad, has been pretty quiet lately – and more and more people seem to be doubting his ability to really understand what’s going on. It’s funny how the “heroes” of the past few years aren’t looking so perfect any more.
