Tim Tully, Partner at Menlo Ventures, grew up in Silicon Valley, where a love for coding was kindled in him. Tim is a technologist to the core, which innately led him to become an elite technical leader at companies like Splunk and Yahoo.

After 20+ years as an operator, Tim has joined Menlo Ventures as an Investment Partner, a position that lends itself nicely to his obsession with dabbling in different types of technologies and problem-solving. He invests in a variety of fields including cybersecurity, cloud, AI/ML, dev ops, deep tech, and quantum computing. During our conversation, Tim and I discuss:

  • The role of the CTO and the responsibilities that come with the title
  • The benefits of being a CTO who still codes
  • Solving people problems with empathy and why leadership doesn't always fit into a framework
  • Recent technology trends Tim has seen as an investor
