VC Breakfast Club: Ping Li of Accel Partners, focus on Computing, Storage Infrastructure, Media, Consumer Internet, Mobile
Accel Partners is a venture capital firm that has been dedicated for over 25 years to supporting entrepreneurs who possess the unique insight to define new categories and build world-class technology companies. These entrepreneurs have led fundamental industry transformations rather than followed predefined market trends. Accel deeply shares our entrepreneur's passion for fundamental uniqueness and their courage to be first.
This emphasis on leadership has engendered category defining companies that have reshaped their industries and in many cases created entirely new sectors. Accel-backed companies have sparked many of the most significant revolutions in technology businesses, such as: Veritas Software, RealNetworks, UUNet, Macromedia, PictureTel, Foundry Networks, Walmart.com, and many others.
Ping joined Accel in 2004 and focuses primarily on information technology infrastructure (compute, networking, security and storage), as well as digital media solutions. He currently serves on the Board of Directors at BitTorrent, Mochi Media, Mu Security, and YuMe, and he is actively involved in Consentry, Imperva, and Oak Pacific Interactive. Ping was also responsible for Accel’s investment in Reactivity (acquired by Cisco).
Prior to Accel, Ping was a Senior Product Line Manager and Director of Corporate Development at Juniper Networks. He managed Juniper's M-series router product portfolio that generated revenues over $50 mm/quarter. In addition, Ping worked on Juniper's acquisition of Netscreen Technologies ($3.5 billion transaction) and led all subsequent security and routing product and R&D integration activities. He also worked as a strategy consultant for Mckinsey & Company, advising technology clients in their growth strategies.
Ping has extensive international experience as well. At Singapore Telecom, he served directly for the executive management team in assessing and investing in Asian growth opportunities. Prior to SingTel, Ping worked at Goldman Sachs Asia, transacting large PTT privatizations and advising telecom clients on complex restructuring and asset divestitures. Ping continues to be active in China investing by working with IDG-Accel China Fund.
Ping holds an A.B. from Harvard University, with honors, and an M.B.A. from Stanford University.
