Venture capitalist Eric Feng knows how to spot and develop long-term talent. A partner at the premier Silicon Valley venture capital firm, Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers (KPCB), Feng focuses on consumer Internet investments and incubations. Before joining KPCB, he was the founding CTO and head of product at Under Feng’s leadership, Hulu was recognized as the Associated Press Website of the Year (2008), the PC World Best Product (2008), and the TIME magazine Best Invention (ranked No. 4 in 2008), among other honors. Earlier in his career, Feng was Chief of Staff to Vice President Al Gore.

IVYtv caught up with Feng to ask him what it’s like to actually be an investor — from the characteristics he looks for in an entrepreneur, to the “three T’s” of venture capital that any investor needs to know before putting their money into a new enterprise.
