From Prospect Venture Partners
It is with great sadness that we share the news that our partner Alex Barkas passed away on November 21, 2011, suddenly and unexpectedly. Alex was an extraordinary father, and husband, friend and colleague, deeply admired and respected by all who had the special privilege to know and work with him. In nurturing those that he cared about the most, whether it was his family, friends, colleagues, entrepreneurs or his charitable interests, Alex brought passion, wisdom, sincerity and an unrivaled love of life. Alex leaves behind for us a legacy of hope and commitment to achieve greatness with kindness, care and perseverance. He will be very deeply missed.
Our condolences to his family and all who knew him.
