Institutional Venture Partners (IVP) announced two new additions to its investment team.

Institutional Venture Partners (IVP), one of the premier later-stage venture capital and growth equity firms, announced two new additions to its investment team. Roseanne Wincek joins IVP as a VP and will focus on investing in later-stage, high-growth consumer and enterprise companies. Alexander Lim joins IVP as an associate and will focus on identifying and evaluating later-stage enterprise software, Internet, and mobile investments.

Roseanne was previously a principal at Canaan Partners, a leading early stage venture firm, where she completed transactions for companies such as Beckon, Stayful, Metacloud (acquired by CSCO), RelayRides and UNIFi Software. She has been a Product Manager in both the consumer and enterprise sectors for companies such as NextBio and Wiser You, and she was also an Associate with McKinsey & Co in New York.

Prior to IVP, Alex worked in the Technology Investment Banking group at Credit Suisse, where he was involved in numerous strategic and financing transactions for a variety of companies in the enterprise software and hardware industries.

“We are delighted to welcome Roseanne and Alex to the firm. Both are talented investment professionals and they will complement our team perfectly,” said Todd Chaffee, general partner.

“Roseanne’s educational background coupled with her business experience in technology and strategy consulting will give us another valuable perspective as we assess new investment opportunities,” said Jules Maltz, general partner.

IVP is currently investing IVP XIV, a $1 billion later-stage venture capital and growth equity fund, and manages $4 billion in committed capital.
