Ridge Ventures adds Brendan Baker as partner

Ridge Ventures, which last year raised $150 million for its fourth early-stage fund, has tapped Brendan Baker to join the team as partner. Baker was previously with Wing Venture Capital and Hone Capital, as well as such companies and accelerators as Passport, Shift, Batch, AngelPad and Techstars. On the investment team, he joins Alexander Rosen, Ben Metcalfe, Gil Penchina and Pat Kenealy.

Ridge Ventures was formerly known as IDG Ventures, but rebranded last year with the close of Fund IV. Former Partner Phil Sanderson has since joined Peter Levin at Griffin Gaming Partners.
