“I’m excited to join the board of a dynamic and game changing company like DocuSign,” said Mary Meeker, general partner at Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers. “Thanks to very rapid growth of high-speed wireless connectivity on increasingly functional touch-based devices, entrepreneurs are re-imagining and re-inventing businesses at a record pace.
