I got a lucky break coming out of college, when I got a job working as an analyst at Insight Venture Partners. I had learned about VC when I took classes at MIT Sloan while in college. I loved the work as a VC at Insight, and I chose to make my career as a venture investors.
We prioritize a wide range of characteristics, but the most important are purity of motivation, unique insight, first principles thinking, the founders' ability to work well together, and desire to stay the course.
We work very closely with founders post-investment, and we apply a resource-intensive, hands-on approach via our Success Team. We work well with all types of founders, and we pride ourselves on being able to tailor our model to the specific needs of a founding team.
We are a very data-driven firm, so you should have a strong handle on the key assumptions and metrics underlying your financial projections and business model.
My personal values are consistent with our firm values and mission. We like to say that the purpose of our firm is to bring the invisible to life.
The future of NYC tech is very bright. I love the fact that the ecosystem is growing, it is diverse, and it is welcoming to founders and investors from a broad set of backgrounds.
