MICHAEL A. GREELEY
Given the extraordinary level of disruptive technology innovation we are seeing, I have never been this excited and optimistic as a venture capitalist. The next decade will witness tremendous transformation of many industries, but perhaps no more so than in the healthcare industry.
I am the Co-Founder and General Partner at Flare Capital Partners, an early stage healthcare technology venture firm, having served for a dozen or so years as the Founding General Partner of Flybridge Capital Partners. My principle focus now is on the reinvention and transformation of the “business of healthcare.” I also am quite intrigued by novel service delivery models, data analytics, and new risk-bearing entities.
I have the privilege to work with some of the most creative, brilliant, and passionate entrepreneurs who want to change the world.
I have been in the investment field since the mid-1980’s when I graduated from college thinking I was going to be a doctor (long story). Some of the other firms I worked for are Polaris Partners, GCC Investments, Wasserstein Perella & Co., and Morgan Stanley & Co.
I received a BA with honors in Chemistry from Williams College (a great school that I am still actively involved with) and an MBA from Harvard Business School.
I served as the Chairman of the New England Venture Capital Association, where I also served as President from 2005 to 2008, and also served on the executive committee of the board of the National Venture Capital Association. Additionally, I serve on the advisory boards of Advocate Aurora, Cleveland Clinic and Boston Children’s Hospital, and sit on the investment committee of the Partners Innovation Fund. I was also on the Massachusetts Governor’s Digital Health Council.
While I consider myself a New Yorker, I grew up in Hong Kong, and try to get back to Asia often. I currently live in Boston with my wife and two children and am an avid runner, having “successfully” completed five marathons in the past few years. While at Williams, though, I had a remarkably undistinguished career as a four-year varsity lacrosse player.
