Interview: iFund Manager Matt Murphy Says


Earlier this year, Apple (NSDQ: AAPL) surprised us all when Kleiner Perkins Caulfield & Byers announced it would support the iPhone by creating a standalone $100 million iFund focused on making investments in companies building iPhone applications. Six months later, KPCB has written five checks, and the iPhone has turned out to be a dynamic marketplace with millions of applications being downloaded by tons of eager users. Today, I caught up with Matt Murphy, who is managing the iPhone-focused fund, to discuss everything from the potential opportunity that the iPhone represents to what’s next for mobile to *Google* Android and the recent announcement that Cyriac Roeding, the former EVP of mobile at *CBS*, will be joining KPCB as an entrepreneur-in-residence.
