U.S. Venture Partners Announces Demise of its Founder Jr. William K. Bowes

U.S. Venture Partners announced the passing of founder and inspirational leader, William K. Bowes, Jr., known affectionately by everyone as just ‘Bill.’ Bill passed away peacefully in his home on December 28. Bill was not only the founder of U.S. Venture Partners (‘USVP’), he was one of the true pioneers of Silicon Valley and venture capital, bringing wealth and prominence to California and the U.S. economy as a whole. As a senior partner in corporate finance at Blyth & Co., Bill was the lead underwriter of both Hewlett-Packard and Raychem. He was also a personal investor in many of the earliest startups that later defined Silicon Valley. Bill originally founded USVP in response to requests from a number of investors in Europe who wanted a way to participate in the emerging venture capital market in the United States. Personifying his visionary leadership style, Bill’s first move was to recruit two seasoned operating executives, from retail and technology industries, to join him as his two senior partners. Though commonplace now, it was unusual at the time for a venture firm to seek and involve operating executives. Before then, venture investing was largely being done by those with financial or investment management backgrounds.
