Hayley Barna, First Round Capital
Hayley Barna got one of the first checks for her startup, the beauty subscription company Birchbox, from First Round Capital. Now, she's a partner at the firm. She's made investments in companies such as Mirror, Thirty Madison, and Caper, which Instacart bought for $350 million in October.
After leaving Birchbox in 2015, Barna was initially reluctant to become a VC. In her bio on the seed-stage firm's website, she wrote, "I so valued being a part of the First Round community that I wanted to remain a part of it and deliver back to it."
Olivia Benjamin, Operator Partners
Olivia Benjamin's career path has been described as a "rocketship." As an analyst at Goldman Sachs, she drew early attention as a member of the winning team for the bank's impact fund competition. She then joined Bain Capital Ventures, where she worked with companies such as Mirakl, which makes software for online marketplaces and is now worth $3.5 billion.
Benjamin's work at Bain grabbed the attention of Nat Turner and Zach Weinberg, the cofounders of Flatiron Health, who tapped her as a partner for their new VC firm, Operator Partners, in 2020. Her deals there include an investment in the retail livestreaming company Whatnot, which is now worth $3.7 billion.
Jesse Beyroutey, IA Ventures
Jesse Beyroutey joined IA Ventures in 2011 fresh out of the University of Pennsylvania's management and technology program. Over the next few years, he made his mark on the then-fledgling VC firm, backing startups such as Komodo Health and Ironclad.
At IA, Beyroutey and his partners took a unique approach, applying principles of game theory to evaluate which startups have the potential to dominate their industries. In 2021, when Roger Ehrenberg, IA's founder, retired, he named Beyroutey and Brad Gillespie as the firm's new heads.
John Borthwick's Betaworks helped power the second wave of internet startups in the mid-to-late 2000s. Borthwick founded the venture studio and VC firm after selling a previous startup to AOL, working as an executive at Time Warner, and launching an early photo-sharing site.
Since 2008, Betaworks has built or invested in companies such as Twitter, Tumblr, Chartbeat, Venmo, and Giphy. More recently, it has backed startups such as Gimlet, Rec Room, Hugging Face, and Superplastic.
Peter Boyce II, Stellation Capital
When he was a student at Harvard, Peter Boyce II founded two campus organizations focused on entrepreneurship and investing. It's no wonder then that as a partner at General Catalyst, he cofounded the firm's student-run investment fund, Rough Draft Ventures.
As an investor, Boyce has worked with companies such as Ro and Mark43. Earlier this year, he left General Catalyst to launch his own pre-seed and seed-stage VC firm, Stellation Capital. His investments at Stellation include Hopscotch, which makes a payments system for small businesses, and Bods, where online shoppers can create avatars to try on clothing virtually.
Sandy Cass, Red Swan Ventures
Sandy Cass joined Bonobos and Artsy after writing early checks into both companies. But he eventually decided to focus more on backing and advising founders rather than serving in executive roles.
"My skill set and passion is more about helping founders realize their vision," he told Insider. "I realized that my day job was starting to get in the way of investing."
He's now a managing partner of Red Swan Ventures, alongside Bonobos founder Andy Dunn, whom Insider named to its Seed 100 list of the top early-stage investors. Red Swan's list of big exits include Coinbase, Warby Parker, and Oscar Insurance.
Nisha Dua, BBG Ventures
Nisha Dua's path to becoming a prolific backer of female founders started at the AOL Brand Group. A former lawyer and management consultant, she worked with the longtime media executive Susan Lyne and created a site called Built By Girls, focused on encouraging young women to pursue careers in technology.
Through the site, Dua and Lyne spotted an opportunity to support female tech founders with greater access to capital, and the two decided to launch a fund. Originally under AOL's umbrella, the firm spun out in 2019. Its investments include Spring Health, Zola, CanelaTV, and The Mom Project.
Anu Duggal, Female Founders Fund
Anu Duggal launched Female Founders Fund following her own experience running a venture-backed startup, the private-sale company Exclusively.in. One thing she noticed: She was a relative rarity, given that a slim portion of venture funding went to women.
Since 2014, Female Founders Fund has backed women-led startups such as Eloquii, Rent the Runway, Hued, and Maven Clinic, which notched a $1 billion valuation last year.
Esther Dyson, angel investor
Esther Dyson is an OG in the tech scene. She served as the founding chair of the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers, which manages key processes that control the internet. She also once chaired the Electronic Frontier Foundation.
Dyson is now the founder of Wellville, a nonprofit project focused on health and equity in five US communities. She's a prolific investor as well, backing companies such as 23andMe, Meetup, Evernote, and Block. Earlier this year, she made Insider's Seed 25 list of the top female early-stage investors.
Dyson started her career in a decidedly low-tech role, as a fact-checker at Forbes magazine. She told Insider, "That role is one of the best preparations I could imagine for almost any career."
Ellman, who in May made Insider's Seed 100 list of top early-stage investors, cofounded RRE Ventures in 1994 with Jim Robinson, his classmate from Harvard Business School. Since then, Ellman has raised eight funds totaling more than $2 billion, and he's backed companies such as Bark, Giphy, Venmo, and Fi. He was also an early investor in Insider.
Jenny Fielding, The Fund
Through her former role as a managing director of Techstars, Jenny Fielding became one of the most well-connected investors in New York. At the accelerator, she backed companies such as Alloy, Latch, and Chainalysis, all of which have gone on to become unicorns.
Having been a founder herself, Fielding invests with the mindset of a company operator. In that vein, she launched The Fund with a group of founders and startup executives in 2018. The VC firm has since backed more than 200 companies.
Shana Fisher, Third Kind Venture Capital
Shana Fisher has shunned the spotlight, but she's long been a fixture of New York's tech-investing scene.
She attended New York University's Interactive Telecommunications Program — the same place where Dennis Crowley hatched the precursor to his company Foursquare — and got her feet wet in tech mergers and acquisitions, first at Allen & Co. and then at IAC.
Both as an angel investor and through her firm Third Kind Venture Capital, Fisher has been an early backer of startups such as Pinterest, ThredUp, Refinery29, and Notion. She's also a board partner at Andreessen Horowitz.
David Fiszel, Honeycomb Asset Management
An alum of Steve Cohen's hedge fund Point72, David Fiszel has joined the ranks of crossover fund managers who make both public and private investments. His investment firm Honeycomb Asset Management, which he founded in 2016, has backed Klarna, Ramp, People.ai, and Bombas, among other companies.
Fiszel told Insider that he first aspired to become an investor as a student at Stuyvesant High School, where he could overhear workers making their commutes to Wall Street. At Point72, where he worked from 2008 to 2015, he got his first exposure to private investments, including the firm's stakes in Facebook, Twitter, and Palantir.
Backing growth-stage startups isn't that different from investing in public companies, he said: "The learnings cross over."
Lee Fixel, Addition
For more than a decade, Lee Fixel served as one of Tiger Global Management's top VC dealmakers. He led the firm's investments in Stripe, Roblox, and Freshworks, among others.
But in 2019, Fixel left to start his own firm, Addition. His firm has since backed startups such as Path Robotics and Lyra Health.
With his wife, Lauren, Fixel founded the Lauren and Lee Fixel Family Foundation, a major contributor to organizations conducting research on Parkinson's disease.
"We believe it is essential to invest in innovative research to develop groundbreaking treatments with the goal of curbing this debilitating illness," Fixel said in a statement when donating $20 million to the University of Florida and UF Health to establish an institute focused on researching the disease.
Mitchell Green, Lead Edge Capital
A former alpine ski racer, Mitchell Green cut his teeth in venture capital at Bessemer Venture Partners. Now he has an arsenal of hits under his own firm, Lead Edge Capital, which he founded in 2009.
The firm's successful exits include Asana, Spotify, and Uber, and it's also invested in Benchling, Bird, and Toast.
Green attributed much of his success to cold-calling hot startups and slowly winning over the ones that initially turn down his overtures, as he told Insider's Julie Bort in October 2020. "We want the CEOs who are like, 'I don't need your money. I don't want your money. I'm growing really fast,'" he said.
David Haber, Andreessen Horowitz
David Haber became Andreessen Horowitz's first general partner in New York when he joined the firm in July 2021 from Goldman Sachs.
It's a return to his roots, so to speak: Haber started his career in venture capital, first as an associate at New Ventures and then at Spark Capital, where he helped source the firm's investment in Plaid. At Goldman, he harnessed that venture background to connect the investment bank with startups such as Carta and the Argentine banking app Ualá.
Haber is also an entrepreneur himself. He joined Goldman after the investment bank acquired his startup Bond Street, which provided lending services for small businesses.
Matt Harris, Bain Capital Ventures
During the chaos of the dot-com bust, Matt Harris had a hunch that startups would bring much-needed changes to the finance industry. For more than two decades, he's built his career around that thesis. At Bain Capital Ventures, which he joined in 2012 after previously running his own venture firm, Harris has backed companies such as Justworks, Flywire, Orum, and Finix.
That deep experience in fintech has served as a calling card for Harris, a self-described introvert who told "The Twenty Minute VC" host Harry Stebbings in 2019 that he shies away from the social circuit. Instead, he said, he gains an edge through "ruthless priorization" — which also comes in handy for him as a father of six.
Rick Heitzmann, FirstMark Capital
Rick Heitzmann has backed a steady string of hits since founding FirstMark Capital in 2008. Among his investments are DraftKings, Discord, Ro, and Crisp.
FirstMark has evolved quite a bit since its founding, Heitzmann told Insider. Originally an early-stage firm, it now invests in growth companies as well and has launched special purpose acquisition companies, too. (One of its SPACs took Starry Internet public in March.) But one thing hasn't changed: Heitzmann is still bullish on the local tech scene.
"The majority of our deals are in New York," he said. "The closer the companies are to our office, the easier it is to do a deal."
Eric Hippeau, Lerer Hippeau
Before cofounding the venture firm that bears his name, Eric Hippeau had a long career as a media executive, including as the CEO of Ziff Davis Media and, later, The Huffington Post (now HuffPost). In 2010, he cofounded Lerer Hippeau with Ken Lerer, a HuffPost cofounder, and Lerer's son, Ben, the cofounder of Thrillist and former CEO of Group Nine Media.
Hippeau has a long track record of investing in media companies. He invested in HuffPost when he was a managing partner at SoftBank Capital, and at Lerer Hippeau, he's backed BuzzFeed, Axios, K Health, and Blockdaemon.
Aaron Holiday, 645 Ventures
Aaron Holiday began his career as an engineer on Goldman Sachs' program trading desk, which makes billions of dollars in trades each day. But now, as a venture capitalist and the cofounder of his own firm, 645 Ventures, he's not afraid to slow things down.
Even when venture capital funding soared to dizzying heights in 2021, he told Insider, he and his partner, Nnamdi Okike, stuck to their measured investment pace. It's an approach that since 645's founding in 2014 has helped Holiday spot breakout portfolio companies such as Iterable, Goldbelly, and Squire.
Jeff Horing, Insight Partners
Jeff Horing cofounded Insight Partners in 1995 after working at Warburg Pincus and Goldman Sachs. He's since backed more than 150 companies. Among his notable investments are Shutterstock, Alteryx, and SentinelOne.
Horing has a particular interest in startups based in Israel. Insight backed Wix and Monday.com, for instance, which are both headquartered there, and the firm has an office in Tel Aviv.
Amish Jani, FirstMark Capital
Amish Jani cofounded FirstMark Capital with Rick Heitzmann in 2008. Since then, he's made investments in companies such as Brooklinen, Shopify, Bluecore, and Frame.io, which Adobe acquired for nearly $1.3 billion last year. In May, Insider named Jani to its Seed 100 list of top early-stage investors.
Yet Jani isn't afraid to highlight his failing bets. His profile on FirstMark's website links to his postmortem blog post on one of his investments, Aereo, whose business model was effectively invalidated by the US Supreme Court.
Rebecca Kaden, Union Square Ventures
Growing up in New York, Rebecca Kaden once thought she'd be part of the city's bustling media scene. Instead, she's a partner at one of its most storied venture firms, Union Square Ventures. There, she's helmed investments in companies such as Outschool, Soona, and Modern Fertility, which Ro acquired in 2021.
A former journalist, Kaden began her investing career on the West Coast at the consumer-focused firm Maveron after graduating from Stanford's business school. She told Insider that a few aspects of her first career transferred to venture capital — namely, "the idea of forming relationships with people and getting them to trust you."
Jonathan Keidan, Torch Capital
Jonathan Keidan founded Torch Capital just three and a half years ago, but he's already amassed some big exits. The firm backed Compass, Sweetgreen, and DigitalOcean, all of which went public in 2021.
Before becoming a VC, Keidan worked in the music industry and later at McKinsey & Co. He also cofounded the digital media company InsideHook. He began making angel investments and then launched Torch, which is focused on consumer companies, with a $60 million fund.
In addition to the exits already under his belt, Keidan has backed Ro, Acorns, Tia, and Zocdoc.
Mo Koyfman, Shine Capital
Mo Koyfman isn't one for being "loud on Twitter," as he told Insider — he prefers the founders he backs to get the spotlight. He's helped guide an array of startups dating back to the web 2.0 era of the mid-2000s.
After a stint at the now defunct investment bank Bear Stearns, Koyfman started his career in tech at IAC, serving as COO of the subsidiary that ran Vimeo and CollegeHumor. In 2008, he left to join Spark Capital, where he backed Sift, Skillshare, Plaid, and Warby Parker.
In 2020, Koyfman launched his own early-stage firm, Shine Capital, which has invested in companies such as Kinta AI, TryNow, Kingdom Supercultures, and Meow.
Josh Kushner, Thrive Capital
Josh Kushner has plenty of high-wattage connections. He's married to model Karlie Kloss, and his brother, Jared, figured prominently in the administration of former President Donald Trump. But he's a quiet power player in New York's VC scene through his firm Thrive Capital, which he founded in 2010 when he was 25 years old.
At Thrive, Kushner has backed companies such as Instagram, Oscar Insurance, Airtable, and Compass. The firm, which started with a $5 million fund, now commands roughly $16 billion in assets under management.
Addie Lerner, Avid Ventures
Addie Lerner cut her teeth in growth investing at Goldman Sachs and General Atlantic, where she worked under the renowned investor Anton Levy. At her next stop, General Catalyst, she backed companies such as Rapyd and Chief.
Now, she's the founder and managing partner of Avid Ventures, an early-stage firm launched in 2020. Lerner's investments include Alloy, Oyster — both now worth over $1 billion — and Nava.
Jeremy Levine, Bessemer Venture Partners
Jeremy Levine has backed a who's who of tech companies over his two decades as an investor at Bessemer Venture Partners.
The Duke alum joined the firm in 2001, right in the thick of the dot-com bust. Yet through his investments, he helped usher in the rise of new internet powerhouses such as Yelp, LinkedIn, Shopify, and Pinterest.
Levine focuses mainly on early-stage investments. He said he's willing to take a light-handed approach with talented founders who may be on the fence about heavy VC involvement — and he even writes angel-size checks. "It's like dating, getting to know each other and building chemistry over a longer period of time," he said.
Anton Levy, General Atlantic
Anton Levy grew up loving computers and in college discovered a passion for finance. As the co-president, managing director, and global head of technology at General Atlantic, he has deftly combined those interests.
He's led deals in companies such as Airbnb, Uber, Klarna, Gilt Groupe, and Squarespace over his 24 years at the growth investment firm and has been a mainstay on Forbes' Midas List of the top venture capitalists since 2014.
"What really drove me, ultimately, on my path is that I've always been a bit of a computer geek," he told "The Twenty Minute VC" host Harry Stebbings in October.
Jeff Lieberman, Insight Partners
Jeff Lieberman joined Insight Partners in 1998, after a two-year stint at McKinsey & Co. He focuses on investments in internet and software companies, and he's led deals across four continents, Insight said.
Some of Lieberman's notable investments include Mural, HelloFresh, and Udemy.
Another of his signature deals was Qualtrics. In a video posted last year, Lieberman described meeting the company's CEO, Ryan Smith, in 2015 and the path to the company's sale to SAP for $8 billion in 2018.
"The sale to SAP represents the largest privately held, VC-backed software exit in history," Lieberman said.
After two years working at Cisco, Lin teamed up with Jonathan Lehr to cofound Work-Bench, a seed-stage venture firm focused on enterprise technology. In addition to backing companies such as Spring Health, Catalyst, Octane, and RippleMatch, she's also become a strong advocate of gender equity in the industry: Work-Bench maintains a list and community of women in enterprise tech and issues regular reports on the topic.
Susan Lyne, BBG Ventures
Before she moved into venture capital, Susan Lyne had a storied career in media as an executive at Disney, ABC, Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia, and AOL. She also served as the CEO and later chair of the ecommerce company Gilt Groupe.
Through those experiences, she saw firsthand how challenging it could be for women business leaders, especially in raising money for their companies to grow. With Nisha Dua, she launched BBG Ventures — whose name is inspired by Built By Girls, the AOL-backed site they ran — in 2014. BBG is now one of the most established VC firms focused on women-led businesses, having raised a third, $50 million fund in March 2021.
Nihal Mehta, Eniac Ventures
Before he became a VC, Nihal Mehta racked up plenty of experience founding startups. He launched and served as the CEO for five companies.
That background has come in handy in Mehta's present work at Eniac Ventures, where he's known as the "human Rolodex," the firm's website said. In 2009, he cofounded Eniac Ventures with three of his classmates from the University of Pennsylvania. He's backed companies such as Admob, Alloy, Attentive, Tala, and Uber.
Mehta is married to Reshma Saujani, who's also a formidable presence in New York's tech scene: She's the founder of the nonprofit Girls Who Code.
Amy Nauiokas, Anthemis Group
These days, fintech is perhaps the hottest area of venture capital. Amy Nauiokas, the cofounder and co-chief investment officer of Anthemis Group, has been focused on investments in the space for more than a decade.
She launched the firm in 2010, just after the financial crisis — a particularly difficult time to convince investors of the benefits of new technologies and tools for the industry, she told Insider. Since then, Anthemis has built up a portfolio of notable companies, such as Betterment, Carta, Pipe, Branch Insurance, and Rally.
In addition to her work as a VC, Nauiokas also founded the media production company Archer Gray, whose projects include the Tony-winning musical "Once" and the Independent Spirit Award-winning film "The Diary of a Teenage Girl."
Jerry Neumann, Neu Venture Capital
Jerry Neumann entered the tech industry straight out of college, as an engineer at IBM working on mainframe computers. He got his start in venture capital by seeding digital agencies at Omnicom. He later spun out the agency's portfolio as part of his own firm.
Neumann founded Neu Venture Capital in 2008. Since then, he's backed companies such as The Trade Desk, Datadog, BankSimple, and Scoot Science.
Charlie O'Donnell, Brooklyn Bridge Ventures
Charlie O'Donnell is perhaps one of the biggest boosters of New York's tech scene. In addition to making investments in local startups, he organizes dinners throughout the city's neighborhoods for people in the industry. He also compiles a newsletter of New York tech events.
O'Donnell, a Brooklyn native, got his start in investing while working at General Motors' pension fund. Eventually, he sought to invest at earlier stages, which led him to Union Square Ventures — then in its early days. In 2012, he launched Brooklyn Bridge Ventures, which focuses on pre-seed and seed-stage startups in the New York area.
Among his investments are Hungryroot, Petal, and Clare.
Chris Paik, Pace Capital
Chris Paik entered New York's tech-investing scene with a bang just over a decade ago. He made his mark by leading Thrive Capital's investment in Twitch, which Amazon acquired in 2014 for $970 million, and assisting in the firm's investment in Instagram. Insider named him one of New York's rising VC stars in 2014.
Since then, Paik has set out on his own, launching the fund Pace Capital alongside Jordan Cooper, an alum of Lerer Hippeau, in 2019. Paik has backed companies such as Patreon, SchoolHouse, and Beam.
Deven Parekh, Insight Partners
Since joining Insight Partners in 2000, Deven Parekh has made more than 130 investments and racked up an extensive portfolio of big wins, including Twitter, Alibaba, and JD.com. He's also invested in companies such as Calm, Checkout.com, and Fanatics.
Outside of his day-to-day work, Parekh serves on the board of directors of the US International Development Finance Corporation, the US government's development bank for lower-income and middle-income countries. Last year, he won a Ripple of Hope Award from the nonprofit organization Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights.
Jeremy Philips, Spark Capital
Long before he became a VC, Jeremy Philips got firsthand experience of taking a company to an IPO in Australia, his home country. In his role as a partner at Spark Capital, he's now shepherding founders who are aiming to do the same.
Since 2014, when he joined Spark to lead its expansion into growth investments, he's backed companies such as Affirm, Ramp, Slack, and Coinbase.
In his previous career, Philips launched an internet company called Ecorp, which went public on the Australian Stock Exchange in 1999. Now, in addition to investing, he teaches classes at Columbia Business School, where he's an adjunct professor.
Aniq Rahman, Vast Ventures
Aniq Rahman is prolific both in leading companies and backing them.
He last served as president of the cloud-analytics company Moat, which Oracle acquired in 2017. He's also founded other companies, including one in stealth.
As a VC, he's a managing partner at Vast Ventures, which had six companies in its portfolio go public in 2021, including Ginkgo Bioworks, Coinbase, and Clover Health. Rahman has personally invested in startups such as Acorns, Carta, and LiveRamp.
Bryan Rosenblatt, Craft Ventures
Bryan Rosenblatt has had stints helping to build out New York teams for Bay Area companies. Now, as a partner at Craft Ventures — the VC firm founded by David Sacks, the Yammer founder and member of the "PayPal mafia" — Rosenblatt is working to grow the firm's East Coast presence.
Prior to joining Craft, Rosenblatt worked on the East Coast teams at Twitter and Reddit. Now, he's backed startups such as Dapper Labs, Orum, Eight Sleep, and Citizen. In 2021, he made Insider's Seed 100 list of the top early-stage investors.
Micah Rosenbloom, Founder Collective
Micah Rosenbloom had multiple startups under his belt by the time he cofounded his VC firm in 2010. In fact, that's the premise of the Founder Collective firm: Each of its partners, including Rosenbloom, has personal experience building a company.
At Founder Collective, Rosenbloom has backed companies such as Dia & Co., as well as Plated and Sense360, which have both since been acquired. As a three-time entrepreneur, Rosenbloom has firsthand experience with exits: He sold Brontes Technologies, a 3D-scanning company, to 3M; and the food-safety company Sample6 Technologies to IEH.
Katie Shea, Divergent Capital
Katie Shea got her start in the retail and consumer industry building a women's fashion accessory business out of her dorm room at New York University. She's been in the field ever since, and it's given her a keen eye for the next big consumer brands. Her angel investments include the popular apparel brands Bombas and Parade.
Shea started her VC career at the venture studio Kairos, where she spun out the pre-seed fund K50 Ventures, and in 2021 launched the firm Divergent Capital, whose portfolio companies include the edtech startup EdSights and the skincare company Topicals.
Ian Sigalow, Greycroft
Ian Sigalow entered venture capital fresh out of MIT in 2001. Five years later, he set off to launch his own firm.
That firm, Greycroft, now has more than $2 billion in capital commitments and has made more than 200 investments. Sigalow has led the firm's deals in companies such as Venmo, Flutterwave, Public, and Branch.
Sigalow is keenly interested in fintech, and recently he's become particularly focused on finding promising startup founders around the world, especially within that sector, Greycroft told Insider.
In 2020, Simpson joined Andreessen Horowitz's crypto arm, and last year, she became a general partner at the firm. Her investments there include the popular Web3 game Axie Infinity, the non-fungible token company Autograph, and the decentralized-finance company Goldfinch.
Caitlin Strandberg, Lerer Hippeau
In her time at Lerer Hippeau, Caitlin Strandberg has developed an eye for backing Gen Z and family-oriented consumer brands. Her investments include Topicals, Cake, Parade, Camp, and Onward.
Strandberg joined Lerer Hippeau in 2018 from another New York firm, FirstMark Capital, where she was a vice president. She started her career working in business development at two startups, Behance and LearnVest.
Ben Sun, Primary
Ben Sun teamed up with Brad Svrluga to launch Primary in 2015. He's since led the firm's investments in companies such as Coupang, Chief, K Health, Slice, and Mirror.
Back when he cofounded Primary, Sun told Insider, his peers thought he was "insane" for building a firm around seed-stage startups in New York. At the time, the biggest exit was Yahoo's $1.1 billion acquisition of Tumblr in 2013, and some investors were still skeptical on the city's tech scene. But now New York hosts public tech companies such as as UiPath, Compass, and Latch, one of Primary's past investments.
"NYC had almost 30 tech IPOs last year alone, and success breeds success," he wrote in an email.
Dan Sundheim, D1 Capital Partners
Dan Sundheim, who's been dubbed the "LeBron James of investing," leads D1 Capital Partners, which has made its fair share of notable private investments. It's backed Warby Parker, Robinhood, Snowflake, and Instacart.
Sundheim cut his teeth on Wall Street at Bear Stearns and Viking Global Partners. In his spare time, he's an avid art collector who owns works by Andy Warhol and Jean-Michel Basquiat.
Brad Svrluga, Primary
Brad Svrluga started his career as a consultant and began investing in startups at the tail end of the dot-com boom. He launched his first venture firm in 2003 and made early investments in companies such as Ticketfly and TxVia.
Svlruga now focuses on enterprise apps and healthcare IT companies at his VC firm Primary, which he cofounded with Ben Sun in 2015. At Primary, he's backed companies such as Alloy, Electric, and K Health, all of which are unicorns, and Latch, which went public in 2021.
Jarrid Tingle, Harlem Capital
Jarrid Tingle launched his venture fund, Harlem Capital, out of his living room. He and cofounder Henri Pierre-Jacques came up with the idea after noticing the dearth of Black investors in venture capital. They originally made angel investments. Then in November 2019, they raised their first $40 million fund.
At Harlem Capital, which in 2021 closed a $134 million fund, Tingle has backed companies such as Cashdrop, Wagmo, and 4Degrees.
David Tisch, BoxGroup
David Tisch comes from a family of prominent New York businessmen. Over the past decade and a half, he's made a big mark in the city's tech scene, as the founder and past managing director of TechStars NYC and as the founder and managing partner of the VC firm BoxGroup.
Before he turned to investing, Nat Turner gained plenty of cred as a startup founder, alongside his business partner Zach Weinberg. The duo cofounded two companies: Invite Media, which Google bought for $81 million in 2010, and Flatiron Health, which the pharmaceutical giant Roche bought for $1.9 billion in 2018.
After selling their companies, the two turned their attention to the VC world, launching the firm Operator Partners. Turner has also backed hundreds of startups as an angel investor, including Bark, Plaid, and Clover Health.
Alexa von Tobel, Inspired Capital
Alexa von Tobel was an early founder in the nascent fintech category. Now, as a VC, she's backing potential standouts in the space.
Von Tobel launched LearnVest, a personal-finance site, in 2008. Northwestern Mutual later acquired the startup. As Northwestern Mutual's chief innovation officer, von Tobel began to dip her toes in investing through the insurance company's corporate venture fund, which backed fintech startups such as Chime.
Since 2019, von Tobel has run her own VC firm, Inspired Capital, which she launched alongside Penny Pritzker, the former US Secretary of Commerce. Its portfolio companies include Finix, Orum, and Habi.
Jesse Walden, Variant
As he told Insider earlier this year, Jesse Walden didn't intend to become a venture capitalist. But as an early crypto founder-turned-investor, he's quickly made a mark in the world of Web3.
In 2020, after a stint at Andreessen Horowitz, Walden launched the venture firm Variant, which has backed boldfaced names in the crypto world such as Uniswap, Phantom, and Friends with Benefits. Last year, Variant raised a $110 million fund and brought on another Andreessen alum, Li Jin, who previously ran the VC firm Atelier Ventures.
Zach Weinberg, Operator Partners
Zach Weinberg has a multi-hyphenate résumé. He has launched multiple startups, selling one for billions of dollars; he's backed a long list of startups as an angel investor; and he now owns an events space and dance club in the hip Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn.
Alongside Nat Turner, Weinberg cofounded Invite Media and Flatiron Health and now runs the VC firm Operator Partners. Operator's portfolio includes Dapper Labs, Spring Health, and Whatnot.
Ellie Wheeler, Greycroft
Ellie Wheeler originally intended to become a doctor. But in her first semester of medical school, she quickly realized she wanted to do something else.
That "something else" turned out to be spotting emerging tech companies — first at Cisco, where she had a hand in the company's acquisitions of Xobni and Jabber, and then at Chris Sacca's VC firm Lowercase Capital.
Since 2011, Wheeler has been an investor at Greycroft, where she was named partner in 2015. She focuses on digital health and wellness companies and has backed companies such as Thirty Madison, Eden Health, Hubble, and Parade.
Jillian Williams, Cowboy Ventures
In her six-year career in venture capital, Jillian Williams has already made a significant mark. As a principal at Anthemis Group, she led deals in Rally, Pipe, and Matic Insurance. In April 2021, she joined Aileen Lee's Cowboy Ventures, where she focuses on fintech investments.
Williams started her career as an analyst in Barclays' financial institutions group. She gained an edge by becoming familiar with startups, she told Insider, as her colleagues sought to wrap their heads around fintech companies such as Venmo. Soon she became fascinated with the burgeoning field.
"The earlier the companies were that I was meeting with, the more interesting I found it," she said.
Fred Wilson, Union Square Ventures
Fred Wilson cofounded what is now considered one of New York's blue-chip venture firms, Union Square Ventures. He's backed startups for more than three decades and is married to a fellow investor, Joanne Wilson of Gotham Gal Ventures.
Wilson got his start in venture capital as an associate at the firm Euclid Partners, right after earning an MBA from Wharton. In the mid-1990s, he left to start his own firm, Flatiron Partners, which folded in the wake of the dot-com bust. His second go-round — at Union Square Ventures, which he cofounded in 2003 — has yielded big hits such as Twitter, Etsy, Kickstarter, Coinbase, and Duolingo.
Josh Wolfe, Lux Capital
In 2000, Josh Wolfe cofounded Lux Capital, which focuses on funding companies capable of giant breakthroughs — akin to what Google calls "moonshots" — in areas such as biotech, artificial intelligence, aerospace, and defense.
Among Wolfe's investments are the defense AI company Anduril, space startup Hadrian, and 3D-printing company Shapeways, which went public in September 2021.
Wolfe grew up in the Coney Island neighborhood of Brooklyn. He told Insider his upbringing gave him a natural sense of skepticism that comes in handy for evaluating investments.

The other issue is that solar cells have a guanteed life expectancy of about 25 years, with average efficiency losses of 0.5% per year. If replacement begins after 25 years, time is running out for all the panels that were installed during the early 2000s boom. The International Renewable Energy Agency (IREA) projects that by 2050, we’ll be looking at 78 million metric tons of bulky e-waste. The IREA also believe that we’ll be generating six million metric tons of new solar e-waste every year by then, too. Unfortunately, there are hardly any measures in place to recycle solar panels, at least in the US.
How are solar panels made, anyway? And why is it so hard to recycle them? Let’s shed some light on the subject.
How It’s Made: Solar Panels
Solar panels come in three basic types — monocrystalline, polycrystalline, and thin-film. Each cell of a monocrystalline solar panel is made from a single silicon crystal. These are the single malt Scotch of solar panels, and are usually black.
Polycrystalline panels have a jumbled, multi-faceted look to them because they’re made from several silicon crystals. These panels are usually blue, and this is because of a coating that makes them perform better. Thin-film solar panels are the type you see in solar calculators and watches, and they offer the least efficiency. These are made from amorphous silicon, which is why they look so different from the other two.
The resulting polysilicon is collected into rocks and melted together into ingots. Boron is added (known as doping) to deliver the silicon positive polarity. Then the ingots are sliced into paper-thin wafers that are coated with a substance that makes them absorb sunlight rather than reflect it.
The cells are treated with a phosphorus coating that negatively charges the surface, completing the p-n junction that makes it possible to convert the sun’s energy into electricity. The cells are baked in a furnace and then soldered together into panels. A layer of protective glass goes on the front, and a durable polymer goes on the back that keeps out dirt and debris.
So… Recycle Them?
If they are properly cleaned and maintained, solar panels can last for several decades. But as solar panels degrade, they become far less efficient, and eventually stop working altogether. The obvious solution might be to recycle all those solar panels, but it’s not that simple. People don’t go down to the big box store and buy solar panels directly, they buy them from companies who also install them. It’s left up to the companies to track the panels, take them back, and make sure they get recycled. The problem is that not everyone is aware that they can be recycled in the first place, and dumping them in landfills is not being policed much in the States.
Europe is really leading the way when it comes to e-waste recycling. The European Union have a law requiring that solar panel producers take back their panels at end of life and recycle them. Britain has a refinery that uses microbes instead of cyanide to break down e-waste and extract the precious metals. And France is home to Veolia, the world’s only commercial-scale photovoltaic recycling plant. In 2017 their partner PVCycle collected 2,400 tons of end-of-life panels throughout France. Veolia says they are able to achieve a 95% rate of re-usability for the collected metal and glass. Check out their process in the video below.
Right now in the US, recycling solar panels is difficult, and recovering the silver, copper, and silicon requires custom solutions. Scrapping the aluminum frames and silver from the metallization paste doesn’t net that much, and it costs $12-25 per panel plus transportation costs to recycle them. Dumping them in landfills only costs about $1 per panel.
It’s hard to compare the damage done by the solar panel manufacturing process to the damage caused by burning fossil fuels for energy. Neither one is good, so are we solving one problem while creating another? If we don’t figure out a global scheme for recycling panels, we’re certainly headed for a crisis.

Express News Service
Industries Minister P Rajeeve is one of the promising faces in the second LDF government. He is on a hot seat, literally, as the state is not exactly known for its industry-friendly image. Rajeeve talks to TNIE about his plans, controversies, challenges, and CPM’s struggles in Ernakulam district. Excerpts:
Kerala does not have an industrial-friendly image. You have initiated a series of measures to change that. How has it been going? There is a common perception that Kerala has a negative investment climate. But if we look into our past, one can see that we have been at the forefront of many new things. We established Keltron in 1973. We established the country’s first IT park ‘Technopark’ in Thiruvananthapuram. The first ecosystem for startups was developed in Kerala. Though we had taken a lot of steps in the right direction, we haven’t been able to maintain the momentum. The perception that Kerala lacked an industrial-friendly culture remained. Now there is a positive change.
Despite all positive measures, harassment by officials in the name of licences and inspections continues. What steps have been taken in this regard? The two-tier grievance address mechanism has been equipped to handle any sort of complaint. It will handle complaints from an already running industry and from those who want to establish an industry. As far as complaints about harassment by officials in the name of inspections, we have put in place Kerala Centralised Inspectorate System, which decides who should conduct the statutory inspection. After each inspection, the officer concerned should upload the report within 48 hours. The status of the inspections is updated in the system which alerts when to conduct an inspection again.
Kitex Group complained of harassment and opted for an investment in Telangana. How has it affected the state? Though Kitex made a huge fuss, nobody in the industrial sector supported them. All knew their real intentions. If there was a genuine issue, they could have contacted any of us when there was such harassment.
You mean it was politically-driven? The election result may have disappointed them and they were looking for a reason to make an investment outside Kerala. They must have expected something in the assembly elections and were frustrated. We don’t have any politics in the issue. That’s why none from the government made any statement against them.
A lot of big IT brands like IBM, Cognizant and TCS are setting up infrastructure in Kerala. Are there more in the pipeline? We have already handed over 2 lakh square feet of space to Tata Elxsi in Thiruvananthapuram and we did it ahead of schedule. As of now, 40% of their workforce is operating from Kerala. They have now asked for an additional 2.5 lakh sq ft which we will be able to hand over in eight months. They are looking for space in Kozhikode and are planning to shift their major workforce to Kerala. TCS is setting up a 36-acre campus in Kakkanad which is their biggest.
This focus on IT is part of a plan? We can’t have all types of industries. We can’t have highly polluting industries and we have little land available. So our focus is on food processing, IT, pharmaceutical, e-vehicle and we are getting positive responses. Our good socio-economic indicators are a reason why multinational companies are coming here. We have better living standards. There is absolute freedom in Kerala to eat or wear what one wants… We are going to promote ‘Work from Kerala’ in a big way.
Militant trade unionism is still an issue... There are some isolated incidents. The media exaggerates these minor incidents while more gruesome incidents – even murders -- happening in other states over labour issues are not reported. Here we try to intervene at the earliest. For instance, the issue with the Nesto group in Kalpetta. When I came to know about this through social media, we intervened. Now they have agreed to invest Rs 650 crore in the state. But very few media outlets reported this positive development while all were eager to report the unrest.
An entrepreneur has the right to recruit his employees. However, in some places, trade unions are trying to control that... The trade unions have no right to recruit any employee. Nokkukooli is not a labour dispute. It’s a criminal activity. But I would add that trade unions have changed a lot. When they lose jobs, the workers will agitate. That is natural. It’s quite like the situation where theatre owners are now up in arms against OTT platforms. We all have to change considering the developments and changes occurring in technology.
What is the new focus area of the Industries department? Our focus is now on the MSME sector and we aim to create 1 lakh new MSMEs yearly. When we took charge, the number of MSME units registering annually was only 17,300. During the tenure of the previous LDF government, the number rose to 68,000. In the last four months itself, 44,924 new MSME units have been registered in the state. Our next focus is on encashing on the Kerala brand. The state already is a well-known brand across the globe. Making use of this goodwill that the state has, we are planning to create a ‘Made in Kerala’ brand which will be certified by the government.
There is a general perception that the second LDF government is not as good as the first one. One main reason cited for this is the lack of experienced ministers in the Cabinet… This is part of a narrative that is being constructed by the media with the tacit support of the opposition. If the second Pinarayi government is as good as the first, then naturally the third one will also be of the Left. And the opposition is wary of that possibility as they know they will not survive that. Let me remind you there is only one person who arrived in state No. 1 car for taking the oath and returned in the same car. That’s Pinarayi Vijayan. And he achieved this without the support of the media. The media has been hounding him for the last two decades. He won because the people of Kerala know that he is good for the state. People can see through these negative narratives.
The next question is connected to this answer... Is the LDF government all about Pinarayi Vijayan? Again, this is a manufactured narrative. Ours is a collective government where everyone has a voice and it will be heard. The LDF government goes ahead as per the LDF manifesto.
The opponents mockingly say it’s like the ‘headmaster and students’ There is an open discussion in the Cabinet meetings where we all express our opinions and decisions are made collectively. But once a decision is made, we all follow the official line. That is LDF’s discipline.
This government has courted many unnecessary controversies. For example, the appointment of Sriram Venkitaraman as Alappuzha collector. Couldn’t that be avoided? These are administrative matters. Three years of field service is mandatory and all those in his batch have served as collectors. We have to follow the administration norms. However, there are no compromises on other issues.
AP Sunni group which is considered to be close to the CPM is on the path of agitation… The government has no reason for showing special commitment towards this person. We have just followed the norms. There will be no leniency towards him.
The party lost Thrikkakara bypoll with a huge margin. Was such a high-profile campaign necessary given the political history of the constituency? Our decision was electorally correct. By-elections would definitely get media attention. If CM Pinarayi Vijayan addresses a local rally as part of the election campaign, it is criticised as an unnecessary high-voltage campaign, but when Oommen Chandy, as chief minister, attended a family meeting, he was celebrated. That’s the difference. We knew Thrikkakara was a strong bastion of Congress. But still, we wanted to put up a fight as that is the correct thing to do politically. If our vote share had declined, you could say we were wrong. However, I admit that we could not reach out to certain sections as we had expected.
Did you expect a win there at any point of time? No. Thrikkakara is one of the five strong bastions of Congress in the state. Also, it was a do-or-die battle for them. If Congress had lost, the UDF would have withered away by now.
There was some unusual confusion in CPM regarding the candidature. The party workers had painted graffiti and started campaigning for Arunkumar That was because of the confusion created by news channels. We never considered Arunkumar as a candidate. Dr Jo’s candidature was a collective decision.
If CPM workers start campaigning for someone going by what TV channels say, doesn’t it mean that the organisational structure of the party in Ernakulam is weak? The UDF had already announced their candidate and our workers were eagerly waiting for the declaration of a party candidate. They got carried away.
The candidate’s name was announced in the presence of a priest. Wasn’t that unusual? That controversy was created by the media. Stories were planted in the media that he was the candidate of the cardinal. Jo is someone with strong left leanings. The media and the opposition spread stories even about the Red Cross that was there on the dais. It was an attempt to spoil any advantage we would get.
Has the panel deputed by the party to study the reasons for the defeat submitted its report? We are examining the issues. We have already found the reasons for the defeat.
There was an attempt to put the blame for the defeat on you. That is because I am the only minister from the district.
You are the face of CPM in Ernakulam. While the party has been able to make inroads in Kottayam and Pathanamthitta which have a right-wing character, the party could not Excellerate its presence in Ernakulam. Why so? Ernakulam is a metro city and has a floating population. There are factors like class, social issues, caste, and religion. We are trying to overcome this.
CPM has been forced to consider religion and caste while fielding candidates in Ernakulam. Why a progressive party like CPM is doing this? In elections, our goal is to win and we deliver preference to candidates who can garner votes over above that of the party.
Till recently, CPM was seen as a party that opposes development and Congress was seen as a pro-development party. But of late there has been a change. Opposition leader V D Satheesan told us during Express Dialogues that Congress is the “real Left” now. Well, that is a good thing to hear. It means that Congress has accepted that the Left has been right always and they are now trying to follow our path. Congress knows that there is an acceptance for the Left in Kerala society and is trying to use the label.
CPM asked Saji Cherian to resign for his comments against the Constitution. Is this newfound love for Constitution a genuine stand or a convenient one? Communists were the first to raise the demand for Purna Swaraj. We may have had our differences in the past. But in contemporary India, the most important political responsibility is to protect the Constitution. The politics of the present are more important than the past.
What is the status of K-Rail? There is not much discussion about the project nowadays. We had admitted from the beginning itself that the project can be implemented only with the cooperation of the Union government. The approach of the Centre was positive initially. They had supported many development projects. But of late, their response has been political.
The Kerala BJP had been opposing the project. What made you think that the Centre will support it ignoring BJP’s opinion? The Centre was supportive of many National Highway development projects. How can we think that a government that bats for a high-speed rail project will oppose a semi-high-speed rail project? There was a report that if the K-Rail is completed by 2025, there is a chance that the LDF will get a third consecutive term. The campaign against the government started after this.
You were the face of the government in the previous assembly session. Is it an indication of a generational shift in the CPM? There has been a generational change in the party at all levels. We have collective responsibility. If you felt I was more active in the last assembly session, it was because many issues that came up for discussion were related to my departments. We work as a team and respond to the discussions according to the situation. There is no other meaning.

For a quick file transfer between two computers, SCP is a fine program to use. For more complex, large, or regular backups, however, the go-to tool is rsync. It’s faster, more efficient, and usable in a wider range of circumstances. For all its perks, [Michael Stapelberg] felt that it had one major weakness: it is a tool written in C. [Michael] is philosophically opposed to programs written in C, so he set out to implement rsync from scratch in Go instead.
[Michael]’s path to deciding to tackle this project is a complicated one. His ISP upgraded his internet connection to 25 Gbit/s recently, which means that his custom router was the bottleneck in his network. To solve that problem he migrated his router to a PC with several 25 Gbit/s network cards. To take full advantage of the speed now theoretically available, he began using a tool called gokrazy, which turns applications written in Go into their own appliance. That means that instead of installing a full Linux distribution to handle specific tasks (like a router, for example), the only thing loaded on the computer is essentially the Linux kernel, the Go compiler and libraries, and then the Go application itself.
With a new router with hardware capable of supporting these fast speeds and only running software written in Go, the last step was finally to build rsync to support his tasks on his network. This meant that rsync itself needed to be built from scratch in Go. Once [Michael] completed this final task, he found that his implementation of rsync is actually much faster than the version built in C, thanks to the modernization found in the Go language and the fact that his router isn’t running all of the cruft associated with a standard Linux distribution.
For a software project of this scope, we find [Michael]’s step-by-step process worth taking note of for any problem any of us attempt to tackle. Not only that, refactoring a foundational tool like rsync is an involved task on its own, let alone its creation simply to increase network speeds beyond what most of us would already consider blazingly fast. We’re leaving out a ton of details on this build so we definitely recommend checking out his talk in the video below.
Thanks to [sarinkhan] for the tip!

Erin Mulligan Nelson surprised many peers in 2010 when she quit her post as CMO of Dell to join a start-up focused on social data. But after 11 years with the enterprise giant, preceded by a stint in consumer packaged goods at Proctor and Gamble, she was looking for a different challenge.
Ask a dozen CMOs or CIOs what tops their list of strategic priorities and odds are exceedingly good that "big data" ranks either first or second. One of the greatest challenges, they'll tell you, is finding the talent they need to analyse and wring business value from the ever-increasing volume of complex data flooding their enterprises. What they need, they say, are good data scientists -- and lots of them.
Predictive analytics is being touted as the best way for marketers to unearth fresh insights using the wealth of data, technology tools and data science skills now at their disposal. But without the right approach projects are likely to fail.
In the third instalment of CMO’s series on marketing chiefs at fast-growing companies, we talk to Andrew Cocker, CMO of global travel search site Skyscanner about being the company’s first board-level marketing chief and why the company is doubling the size of its marketing team.
In the second of CMO’s series on marketing chiefs at fast-growing companies, we talk to Andrew Sinkov, VP of marketing at apps producer Evernote, about why customer ambassadorship is key in its communication strategy.
Just what makes the marketing chief of a rapidly growing company tick? Do they need specific skills in order to cope with the fast-paced nature of their evolving brand and business? Are they better multi-taskers than most? Do they have an entrepreneurial streak most of us should envy? And how much say do they have in shaping the products and solutions their company offers?
How do you choose the right software (or app) for your organisation? How do you sort through the sales hype? And how can you tell which vendor will be with you for the long haul and which will disappear after the sale?
ANZ Stadium is in the midst of its biggest sporting year since the Sydney 2000 Olympic Games. Driving customer engagement with this historic array of content along with digital transformation are key for new marketing chief, Melinda Madigan.
During the IBM Smarter Analytics conference in Sydney this month, four of its key session speakers from Australia Post, IBM consulting,Telstra and American Express closed off the day by outlining their top tips for improving your approach to data analytics.
Over the past three years, the buzz around big data has continued to grow. While some dismiss it as so much hype, businesses around the world are taking notice: In its recently released 5th annual Digital IQ Survey, consulting firm PwC found 62 per cent of respondents believe big data can deliver them a competitive advantage.
When I was at IBM, I spent some time in the Executive Resource program, which is designed specifically to prepare someone to be a CEO. The program includes classes by top executives and military officers who either were CEOs themselves or were on the short path to becoming a CEO.
Big data has arrived as a big business initiative. But the hip, experimental, ad hoc veneer of blending data streams to surface bold discoveries belies a massive cultural and technological undertaking not every organisation is ready for.
Just how did Steve Jobs and Marc Benioff of Salesforce.com fame become the gurus of creative thinking? Were they born with an inherent talent, or can you in fact learn to become a leading marketing innovator?
Greg Smith is The Co-op's first CMO in its 55-year history. It's no wonder his to-do list stretches a mile and includes everything from brochures to outlet transformations, Facebook strategies and more.
