Mike Derezin

San Francisco Bay Area

I've been an entrepreneur most of my working life. I love to bring new things to life and rally teams around an exciting mission. Currently, I am building an exciting new business from scratch at LinkedIn around social selling.

Prior to LinkedIn, I co-founded several start-ups including, VoxPop (online gaming) and Porvenir (emerging markets data service, acquired by Thomson Financial). In between ventures, I worked in Bain's private equity practice and received my MBA from Stanford.

I've lived in Philadelphia, Los Angeles, the Bay Area, Washington DC, Santiago Chile, Salvador Brazil, and on a ship that traveled around the world.

I'm outnumbered at home with two precious daughters and a wonderful wife. Here's a photo from beautiful Boothbay Haahbah, Maine, a favorite summer spot.
