Ezra Goldman, V.P. Business Development

Ezra Goldman has a 20-year history in the high-technology market, as a software architect and project development leader, general corporate manager, facilitator of strategy and marketing, and mergers and acquisitions.

He puts that experience to use as one half of Lachman Goldman Ventures, a private angel/seed investment partnership that helps launch very early stage Internet and network companies. Together with his partner, Ron Lachman, Ezra actively advises and lends a hand as needed at any of the dozen portfolio companies.

Before focusing exclusively on hands-on early-stage investing, Ezra was Vice President for Systems Integration at global integrator SHL Systemhouse where he helped build the Chicago/Midwest practice from startup to over $30M.

Ezra was vice president of marketing for the services and technologies division at Kodak's INTERACTIVE Systems Corporation. He managed the systems development and integration services, and the production of networking software products such as Unix System V based NFS, TCP/IP and OSI and their licensing to over 75 licensees worldwide.

Ezra holds a B.S. in Mathematics and Computer Science from the University of Illinois. A long time ago Ezra was a member of the UNIX systems development team at AT&T Bell Laboratories and contributed to a number of pioneering implementations on multiprocessing systems including the large-scale UNIX/370 project and can still pass, occasionally, as technically clueful.
