Tech analyst Mary Meeker is leaving venture capital firm Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers LLC. The move is being taken by her for the purpose of starting her own firm.
It has been reported that Meeker was creating a separate firm with her colleagues Mood Rowghani, Noah Knauf and Juliet de Baubigy. However, the final date of her leaving the company has not yet been decided.
“The changes in both areas have led to less overlap between venture and growth and creating two separate firms with different people and operations now makes sense,” Kleiner spokeswoman Katie Hutchison said.
She joined Kleiner in 2010 and assisted in leading the venture capital firm’s digital growth funds. Meeker is also the author of the famed annual Internet Trends Report on technology themes and trends.
