To our founders, leaders, and friends,
A letter from Bessemer
If you’re reading this, we probably caught you scrolling or on the brink of Inbox Zero. It’s 2019. You are AirPods-deep into the new year. For many, the strategic planning is done, the sprints are in motion, and there’s a renewed sense of motivation at work.
What you’re doing isn’t easy. Building a company in order to manifest something new into the world takes major guts. It requires grit and vision to believe that the way we work, play, travel, build, and connect could be entirely different (and better than how we did it a year ago).
When we raised our tenth fund, it motivated us to take stock of Bessemer, reflect on the work we’ve done, and see how things have changed.
