Last Updated: April 26, 2023
The celebrated venture capitalist and Greycroft co-founder discusses a lifetime of lessons and shares what keeps him so motivated on the latest “Out of Office” podcast.

Alan Patricof hasn’t seen and done a little bit of everything as much as he’s seen and done a whole lot of everything. One of the godfathers of the venture capital industry, his investment portfolio over the years has included everyone from Office Depot to America Online to Acorns to Venmo to Apple.

On the latest episode of Boardroom’s “Out of Office” podcast, he takes Rich Kleiman through the story of his professional life (so far) ahead of the release of his new book, No Red Lights: Reflections on Life, 50 Years in Venture Capital, and Never Driving Alone.

And somehow, despite a dance card that’s been full for over half a century, Patricof still finds time to run marathons.

All in a day’s work for an ever-curious entrepreneur who refuses to slow down.
