Why B2B software VC?
B2B software companies focus on making pain points go away. They also tend to be companies growing explosively, which is exciting. Working alongside people that specialise in helping the teams in this space succeed is a dream job.
What’s your vision for data in VC?
The best way to understand is by doing. Data is a space that continues to grow, becoming both more complex and more valuable. To make better investments (and win over founders), it will be increasingly important to understand data yourself – and a top data function is a key component of that strategy. In addition, the amount of data in venture is often li...mited, so it’s even more important to leverage what you have as effectively as possible.
Thinking about the intersection between data and B2B software, what trend or opportunity are you most excited about?
Data ingestion is still a huge pain point. Ingesting and consolidating oddly formatted documents – work an intern can do comfortably – remains a challenge for the modern data stack. There’s been progress over the last five years, but it is still tedious. I believe there is a massive opportunity for whoever helps companies “fix the plumbing”.
