Maia Heymann

Founder & General Partner

Maia brings insight and deep experience to her role as Converge Founder & General Partner, leveraging her 25 years investing in and financing B2B enterprise tech companies. From her days launching BancBoston Venture’s west coast office in Palo Alto, Maia has spent 17 years in venture investing in software application, infrastructure, Internet, and data-enabling start-ups. She has developed industry leading expertise based on her involvement with over 50 M&A transactions, 17 IPOs, 22 board and observer roles.

Maia’s investments and involvements include OnDisplay (IPO), Verstata (IPO), Docent (IPO), Iowa Telecom (IPO), InQuira (acquired by Oracle), Watchfire (acquired by IBM), and WebCT (acquired by Blackboard). Maia headed BancBoston Ventures’ $340M portfolio, served as an MD of Shott Capital’s $2.7B in LP commitments to venture capital funds, and underwrote over $2.5B in structured debt facilities to finance numerous acquisitions for her technology company clients.

I’ve known Maia for 18 years since she was on my board at Watchfire. She was instrumental in influencing the timing of the sale of the company to IBM. Since then we’ve invested together, sat on boards together, and I’ve experienced first-hand how she creates strong board dynamics, builds consensus, and gets things done — Maia is on my very short list of preferred investors.”
— Peter McKay, President, COO Veeam Technology

Maia mobilized Converge’s robust venture partner network to align these skilled executives with our entrepreneurs. This powerful network, when called-upon, helps our entrepreneurs achieve their goals faster and accelerate their companies’ growth.

A trustee and alumna of Wellesley College, Maia currently serves as the Vice Chairman at the New England Venture Capital Association and is passionate about supporting initiatives that super-charge the entrepreneurial climate.

Maia understands that the player on the field is the CEO, not the VC, and owes her success to the meaningful relationships she’s built with entrepreneurs over time.
