Notion also announced that it has promoted ex-Amazon exec Chrys Chrysanthou and ex-Morgan Stanley banker Patrick Norris to partner level.

“These developments leave us exceptionally well positioned for 2017 and beyond, so we feel excited about what the future holds for Notion,” said Notion Capital managing partner Stephen Chandler in a statement.

“From the start we set out to build a genuinely differentiated venture capital firm that would be sustainable across multiple generations.
