Harris, who is helping lead the New York office, previously co-founded and ran Village Ventures, where he invested in Dwolla, iSend, On Deck Capital, Simple, TxVia and Zipmark. We’re told he will be focusing a number of areas, but will be also actively seeking investments in the payments space.
MacLean, who is rejoining Bain Capital Ventures, was formerly a Partner co-leading Accel Partners’ Growth Fund. He’ll be focused on investing in SaaS, financial technology and information-based businesses. Sweeney brings plenty of enterprise expertise to the firm.
