Philip Sanderson | Managing Director @ IDG Ventures
BACKGROUND
I’m a General Partner at IDG Ventures, located in San Francisco. I focus on investments in gaming, music technology, ecommerce, search and adtech.

I’ve always been a big fan of entrepreneurship. As a kid, I camped out at the local bank and pulled out thousands of silver coins from circulation. I sold them at bulk for 30x what I paid, profiting from the short-term run-up of silver prices from $10 to $50 per ounce. While a student at Hamilton College, I launched my first official business in athletic retail by silk screening running tights that grossed over $250K.

I’m an ultra marathoner and have completed more than 40 races over 50K, including seven 100-mile races. I regularly run the Marin trails, either with fellow VCs and tech execs or by myself and my playlists of modern rap and hip hop.
