Long-time tech analyst moves to VC firm

Long-time technology analyst Peter Misek is an analyst no more, leaving Jefferies LLC to join a venture capital firm.

Mr. Misek is joining London-based DN Capital, a firm he has worked with over the years and which has invested in companies such as Shazam and Apsmart.

Mr. Misek will be a venture partner with DN, the latest stop in a career mostly on the research side. He worked at NM Rothschild, where he started the internet and technology practice. After that, he moved to Hambrecht and Quist to cover internet stocks, then to Scotia Capital and Canaccord. He also had a stop at Orion Securities, which ended in a wrongful dismissal lawsuit that was eventually settled.
