Polaris Venture Partners
Founded in 1996 with the vision to identify and invest in exceptional entrepreneurs and operating companies with innovative and disruptive ideas, the skills necessary to become market leaders, and a passion for success. Since its inception, Polaris has believed that diversification across company stage and across industries is the key to outstanding long-term results for the firm's limited partners.
Peter Flint joined Polaris in 2003 and brings over 25 years of experience as an operating executive in the consumer media industry combined with building senior management teams for early stage venture backed companies.
Prior to joining Polaris, Peter was a managing director with Ramsey Beirne Associates, the leading provider of executive searches to high growth, leading edge information technology companies.

He also worked with the Boston Red Sox and Boston Bruins to develop and launch the New England Sports Network. In addition, as vice president of Sales and Marketing for QVC Network, Peter directed a team to secure long-term distribution agreements with the nation's largest cable companies, which was instrumental in the successful initial public offering. Peter was an early entrant in the interactive television marketplace as vice president of Video Jukebox Network, the company that built out the first nationally distributed, on-demand television network.
Peter and his partners have led Polaris' @dogpatchlabs effort over the past two years, and he has been the lead partner for the NYC community.
