We were fortunate enough to hear from Jeff Epstein, investor at Bessemer Venture Partners talk about what VCs want and needs to see from startups and entrepreneurs. The info and insights Jeff talks about are based on his immense breadth of experience as an investor - but he's successfully drawn on exactly what he would want to know if he were a founder now - knowing what he knows as a successful investor.
It's for this reason that we're excited to bring you this podcast. It's seriously info-packed and there's a lot of great advice from someone who's been part of a firm that is a venture capital institution in the United States.
Bessemer Venture Partners is the oldest venture capital firm in the United States. They didn't just see the dot com boom and follow suit - they opened their doors in 1911. The firm has over $5 billion in management and the notable names they have in their portfolio are too many to name - Yelp, LinkedIn, Shopify, Twilio, Box... the list goes on.
