Roger McNamee
Roger McNamee began his career at T. Rowe Price, where he managed the top-ranked Science & Technology Fund. In 1991, he launched Integral Capital Partners, the first crossover fund (combining later stage venture capital with public market investments), in partnership with Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers. In 1999, McNamee cofounded Silver Lake Partners, the first private equity fund focused on technology businesses and the top performing fund of its era. In 2004, McNamee and his partners launched Elevation Partners, a private equity partnership focused on media and entertainment content.

Over a 24-year career, McNamee has made venture investments in Electronic Arts, Flextronics, Intuit, Overture, Rambus, Blue Nile, and many others. Silver Lake's investments included Seagate, Ameritrade, Gartner, and Business Objects. Elevation has made three investments to date: Move.com, Pandemic, and Bioware.

McNamee is a frequent speaker at industry and investor conferences and a commentator on CNBC. He serves on the board of trustees of Bryn Mawr College and the board of overseers of the Amos Tuck School of Business Administration at Dartmouth College. He holds a B.A. from Yale University and an M.B.A. from the Amos Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College, and plays guitar in the Flying Other Brothers Band.
