About Jos White
I’m an entrepreneur turned investor and currently a partner at Notion Capital, a venture capital firm focused on Cloud Computing and Internet services.
Before Notion I co-founded, built and exited three businesses with my brother Ben (RBR Networks, Star and MessageLabs) that all reached beyond $100m in revenues and combined for nearly $1bn in value creation. Star was founded in 1995 as one of the UK’s first ISP’s, and MessageLabs in 2000 as the first company in the world to deliver anti-virus and anti-spam in the Cloud. In 2008 MessageLabs was acquired by Symantec for $700m marking one of the most significant transactions in the emerging software-as-a service (so called ‘SaaS’) sector.
In 2009, I co-founded Notion again with my brother and three other partners and we have since made nine investments. We also led a MBO of Star and have helped to evolve the company into a broader based Cloud Computing business offering infrastructure, platform and applications all provided over the internet as a service.
I’m married with two beautiful children and live in New York City. When I’m not working I love running, reading, golf and cooking. But most of all I love to spend time with the family and to see my kids with a smile on their face and a twinkle in their eye.
