Louis has been an advisor to Touchdown Ventures since 2018, bringing over 25 years of experience in technology venture capital. He works with multiple teams at Touchdown and is also managing partner of Alter Venture Partners.
Having co-founded Comcast Ventures in early 1999, Louis became managing partner in 2009 and oversaw venture investing activities at Comcast Corporation and NBCUniversal. During Louis’ tenure at Comcast Ventures, the team built one of the world’s premier corporate venture capital funds with a portfolio of more than 100 direct investments managed by more than 20 professionals in five US offices. The Comcast Ventures’ portfolio spanned early- to late-stage investments in enterprise technology, media, communications, and consumer internet. In addition to his particular focus on networking, video services, cloud data center solutions, mobility, business, intelligence, and cybersecurity, Louis also collaborated with various Comcast and NBCUniversal business units on internal technology innovation. Through his investments, Louis was also instrumental in the development of several new services and business units at Comcast including Xfinity Home, Comcast Digital Voice, video on demand, and several non-core initiatives in sectors such as population health management and industrial IoT.
Prior to joining Comcast Ventures, Louis worked in investment banking and in venture capital. Louis graduated with honors and holds an MBA from the Wharton School and a MA in International Studies through the Joseph H. Lauder Institute of Management & International Studies at the University of Pennsylvania. He also graduated from the Management & Technology Program at the University of Pennsylvania with a BS in Economics from the Wharton School and a BS in Materials Science & Engineering from the School of Engineering & Applied Science.
Because of a dearth of risk-taking in Louis’ life, he enjoys rock climbing, glade skiing, and hiking.
