Gabriel Sandoval, General Counsel and Venture Partner at Ulu Ventures, has practiced law and advised tech companies in Silicon Valley for decades. He began his in-house work at Oracle in the early nineties, went on to be General Counsel of Ariba supporting its IPO, then Chief Legal Officer of Deem (fka Rearden Commerce). Through these roles, he participated in the highest levels of management and gained experience in all aspects of growing companies.
Experiencing the roller coaster of Silicon Valley over the years, Gabriel has been an integral part of some very successful companies as well as some not so successful. Gabriel likes to say he knows a lot because he’s seen a lot. In post in-house work over the last several years, Gabriel has advised start ups and public companies in an acting General Counsel role which included providing insight to founders/CEOs on daily business decisions and company deal negotiations.
Gabriel is excited to bring his wealth of experience not only to Ulu but to its portfolio companies.
Gabriel is a first-generation American born of Mexican immigrants. He received his BA in Economics at Stanford University and JD at Santa Clara University School of Law. He enjoys spending time with his family, mountain biking, snowboarding and camping.
