Biz Stone to Advise Spark Capital

7/7/11

Twitter co-founder Biz Stone has signed up to assist Boston-based Spark Capital as a strategic advisor. Spark general partner Bijan Sabet announced the news on his blog today. Stone wrote in his blog last week that he is stepping back from his day-to-day role as creative director of San Francisco-based Twitter to “focus on new endeavors,” including relaunching The Obvious Corporation with Evan Williams and Jason Goldman. In his new role with Spark, Sabet says Stone “will help us think through and evaluate new investment opportunities” and “provide us with valuable insight about our current portfolio companies.” Spark has been an investor in Twitter since 2008.
