Clint Korver

Co-Founder & Managing Director, Ulu Ventures

Clint is a Managing Director and co-founder of Ulu Ventures, a $66m seed stage venture firm investing in enterprise IT and FinTech companies from Stanford and Silicon Valley. An active supporter of entrepreneurship within the Stanford community, Clint taught entrepreneurship in the School of Engineering; mentors at StartX, Stanford’s accelerator; and co-founded Stanford Angels & Entrepreneurs, an alumni group with over a 1200 members.
 
Over the last 11 years, Clint and his partner Miriam Rivera have invested in over 110 startups, including Palantir, SoFi, Clever, Krux (acquired by Salesforce), Blue River Technology (acquired by John Deere), and Lex Machina (acquired by RELX Group). 
 
An expert in decision-making under uncertainty, Clint earned a PhD in the topic at Stanford, co-founded four Silicon Valley startups which provided tools to help individuals or organizations make better decisions, and co-authored a book on ethical decision making entitled Ethics for the Real World (Harvard Business Press 2008). He also designed Ulu’s analytic approach to making venture investment decisions.
 
Clint is a Kauffman Fellow, and holds a PhD and an MS in engineering from Stanford, and a BA in mathematics from Grinnell College where he served as Chair of the Board of Trustees.
 
When Clint’s not using his decision analysis talents in venture, he is teaching it to his two kids (they will thank him some day), using it to plan adventures (they thank him now), and using it on the golf course with admittedly little success as he mostly needs practice putting and chipping.
