All in Venture Capital

Valley Visionaries Trip Part 2

Many of the VC offices are built around a fabulous old tree. This one is from the courtyard of Lightspeed Venture Partners. We visited with Lightspeed Venture Partners, Greylock, Sutter Hill, Sequoia, and IVP.

In this episode, I focus on some of the portfolio companies I met with.

Companies discussed in this video are:
Blameless - blameless.com
Epsagon - epsagon.com

Valley Visionaries trip Part 1

Several times a year, we take CIOs, CTOs, and other key decision makers of large enterprise companies to Silicon Valley to meet with Venture capital firms and Leadership of emerging tech companies, to get a good look at what is happening in the emerging technology space. These trip provide tremendous insight into what is happening in the market and provides a good overview of the trends that are driving investments.

SXSW Wrap Up

SXSW is the most important technology conference of the year. There, I’ve said it. The problem is, very few people in IT are aware of it, and that is a shame. This is the one show of the year that not only highlights emerging technology but wraps it in context. This conference is also very international with different countries showcasing their unique companies, technologies and talents. We can get so lost in our own small world that we miss new market opportunities and technologies from around the globe.
