Deepak Kamra has been with Canaan Partners for over 20 years and focuses on investments in digital media and software. He led Canaan’s early investment in DoubleClick, the Internet’s first and leading online advertising solution; Match.com, the first subscription-based dating site; voice-over-IP infrastructure company Acme Packet (acq. by Oracle), and SuccessFactors (acq. by SAP)
Deepak currently sits on the boards of ON24, the global leader of webcasting and video communications solutions, Zoosk, the largest social dating network in the world, and Skybox Imaging, a next-generation satellite company.
Before joining Canaan, Deepak was on the startup team at Aspect Communications, a pioneer in call center technologies, which he helped lead to a successful IPO in 1990. Today the company is called Aspect Software and employs over 2000 people. Prior to Aspect, Deepak held strategic roles at ROLM Corp. and TRW Datacomm International.
Deepak received a BA from Carleton University and an MBA from Harvard Business School. He served on the board of the National Venture Capital Association from 2008 to 2012 and was included on the Forbes Midas List in 2008 and 2009. In his spare time, he is involved in several microfinance initiatives to spur economic growth in developing nations and has served as Chairman of the Investment Committee at Deutsche Bank’s Global Commercial Microfinance Consortium. When Deepak's not busy being a team member, he plays bass in the rock band, "Resistance is Futile", with another Canaan Partner (Mark Mangiola on drums), making snarky comments about everything...including Mark's inability to count to four.
