Amy Banse, Managing Director & Head of Funds, Comcast Ventures
Amy Banse has over 27 years of experience investing in, acquiring and building companies at Comcast. As Senior Vice President of Programming Investments from 1996 to 2004, she oversaw the development of Comcast’s cable network portfolio, leading investments in E!, The Golf Channel and the Company’s regional sports networks (now the NBC Sports networks) and launching Sprout (now Universal Kids). She was the founder and president of Comcast’s digital media division, Comcast Interactive Media, from 2004 to 2011, driving the acquisition of a number of digital properties, including Fandango, and, together with her team, overseeing the development of Xfinity TV. Her transition to venture capital came in 2011 when she moved to San Francisco to head up the company’s venture capital arm, Comcast Ventures. Under her leadership, Comcast Ventures has expanded its team and geography to include offices in New York and Los Angeles and has grown the size and diversity of its portfolio, making it one of the country’s most active corporate venture arms. Today Comcast Ventures invests in early and later-stage companies across a wide spectrum of categories, including commerce, digital media, cybersecurity, SaaS, enterprise, and autonomous vehicles. In addition to serving on the boards of portfolio companies Nextdoor, TuneIn and Quantifind, Banse also serves on the board of Adobe, The Clorox Company, and the nonprofit Tipping Point Community.
