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 tech companies. From her days launching BancBoston Ventures’ west coast office in Palo Alto, Maia has spent 20 years in venture, partnering with founders and investing in disruptive tech startups. She has developed industry-leading expertise based on her involvement with over 60 M&A transactions, 7 IPOs, and 25 board and observer roles.

Select investments include Chainalysis, BlueConic, Help Scout, OnDisplay (IPO), Versata (IPO), Docent (IPO), InQuira (acquired by Oracle), Watchfire (acquired by IBM), and WebCT (acquired by Blackboard).

Serving as the President, Maia headed BancBoston Ventures’ $340M portfolio post its merger with Bank of America. She also served as a Managing Director of Shott Capital’s $2.7B in LP commitments to venture capital funds prior to its acquisition by Hamilton Lane. As a tech banker based in Silicon Valley, Maia 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, CEO, Snyk

An alumna of Wellesley College, Maia currently serves as a Trustee of Wellesley College, chairs the Campus and Finance Committee, and is a member of the investment committee for the Endowment. Maia was the past Chairman and Vice Chairman and former Board member of the New England Venture Capital Association.

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.
