Jeffrey T. Walsh

Venture Partner

We are implored to take what we do seriously because there are so many patients still desperately waiting for cures, but we should never take ourselves too seriously because this kills culture and innovation.

Jeffrey T. Walsh

Jeff loves the chaos of company building with a deep passion for strategy, financial management, deal making and people development. Jeff has over 30 years of healthcare company-building and operating experience, most recently at bluebird bio where he held the roles of COO and CFO over a nine-year period. He helped drive bluebird’s growth from a private, 20-person start-up to a public, global, research, development and commercial enterprise with multiple approved products. Jeff previously held executive roles at Taligen, EXACT Sciences, Pathogenesis and Allscripts.

Important to Jeff is spending as much time as he can get with his wife and three daughters, staying fit and playing golf with friends and colleagues whenever he’s allowed. He also has been a guest lecturer on topics of entrepreneurialism and biotechnology organizational development. Jeff is currently on the board of directors of Tevard Biosciences and Tenaya Therapeutics.
