Paul Kedrosky Launches on Bloomberg.com

Press Release

Web Site is Cornerstone of Kedrosky’s Cross-Media Contributions across Bloomberg

New York -- Paul Kedrosky, the technology and finance analyst, venture capitalist and author of the blog Infectious Greed, has officially launched a new blog on Bloomberg.com (http://bloomberg.com/kedrosky). Additionally, Kedrosky will be a contributor across Bloomberg’s media properties.

Kedrosky’s commentary on finance, business, current affairs and science will appear on the “Paul Kedrosky” blog, as well as on the Bloomberg Professional® service, where he’ll be joining Bloomberg News’ existing team of columnists including Michael Lewis, Al Hunt, Margaret Carlson, Caroline Baum and Jonathan Weil. In addition, Kedrosky will make appearances on Bloomberg Television and Bloomberg Radio and write for Bloomberg Businessweek.

“Paul has a strong voice in the business blogosphere, and his deep knowledge of finance and technology will complement our current roster,” said Bloomberg Businessweek Editor Josh Tyrangiel, who’s also responsible for editorial direction of Businessweek.com and Bloomberg.com.

“This type of model, pairing high quality advertising with a must-read contributor across our unique and broad range of media assets, is a key strategy for us,” said Kevin Krim, global head of Bloomberg Web Properties.

“I’m teaming with Bloomberg because it’s the preeminent provider of global financial and economic news, data and information,” said Kedrosky. “We see things in similar ways: we love data, visuals, and synthesizing across economics, markets, sports, science, technology and current affairs.”

Bloomberg will also exclusively sell advertising on Infectious Greed, which will continue to operate as a separate site.

With a Ph.D. in the economics of technology and a master’s degree in finance, Kedrosky has a variety of roles in business. He is a senior fellow with the $2 billion Kauffman Foundation, where he is focused on entrepreneurship, innovation and the future of risk capital, as well as advising the Foundation on portfolio issues. In addition, Kedrosky is an active investor in both private and public companies, having sold businesses to Cisco and Twitter, among many others.

Kedrosky has also been a successful entrepreneur and was one of the first analysts to cover Internet companies. In 1999 he financed and launched one of the first hosted blog services, GrokSoup and founded the technology equity research practice at HSBC James Capel. Kedrosky was previously an analyst for CNBC and contributor for TheStreet.com.
