Q&A With Venture Capitalist Powerhouse Eric Hippeau on the Future of Digital Media

Hippeau assesses the state of the industry


Eric Hippeau has been riding the media wave for almost three decades—from running Ziff Davis throughout the 1990s to serving as the chief executive of the Huffington Post during its 2011 sale to AOL.

Since then, Hippeau has served as managing director at Lerer Hippeau Ventures, the venture capital company whose fingerprints are all over the digital media landscape. As an early stage investor to digital media companies like BuzzFeed, NowThis (Hippeau is also a co-founder of NowThis), Warby Parker, Axios, Casper, Giphy, Mic, Percolate and others, Lerer Hippeau has arguably had more influence in shaping the realities of “new” media than any other company.
