Mayfield Fund Expands Team, Adding Emily Melton as Partner

Mayfield Fund today announced the expansion of its team, with the addition of Emily Melton as Partner. Melton will focus on investing in the consumer Internet sector and work closely with Managing Directors Raj Kapoor, Navin Chaddha and Yogen Dalal.

Melton comes to Mayfield Fund from Draper Fisher Jurvetson, which she joined in 2000 and where she served as Director focusing on Internet, mobile and consumer-oriented technologies. A few of her notable investments include MyShape, Meebo, Redfin, Ruba and ShareThis. Melton holds a BA with honors and distinction in Political Philosophy and an MBA, both from Stanford University.

“Emily’s venture expertise, entrepreneur-friendly philosophy and domain experience will greatly enrich our Internet investing practice,” said Chaddha. He added, “We look forward to the vibrancy she brings to our team.”

Some of Mayfield’s consumer Internet investments include Affinity Labs (acquired by Monster Worldwide), Consim (India), Fixya, Jotspot (acquired by Google), Qunar (China), Snapfish (acquired by Hewlett Packard) and Slide.

“I joined Mayfield because of the firm’s reputation and legacy, and to become part of a diverse team of hands-on investors that can help entrepreneurs build exceptional companies,” said Melton.
