Greylock Leads in Internet Deals With Groupon Stake

Greylock Partners’ stake in Groupon Inc. lands it in an exclusive Silicon Valley Club. It’s one of two venture-capital firms whose partners own stakes in at least four of the top multibillion-dollar Web startups.

Before investing in Groupon, Greylock was among the first institutional investors in Facebook Inc. and LinkedIn Corp. Greylock partner Reid Hoffman was an early investor in Zynga Game Network Inc. and remains a director. Among venture capitalists, only Andreessen Horowitz’s Marc Andreessen has a comparable stake in the leading Internet companies.
