To glean patterns from those particularly beneficial early-stage decisions (and sometimes just to nourish our fragile egos), we find it helpful to publish and scrutinize the Investment Recommendation Memoranda that we circulated years ago.
One pattern that consistently emerges is that Bessemer’s best investment decisions centered on people. In retrospect, the early products themselves are barely recognizable today. Rather, passionate, analytical, and relentless founders zigged and zagged their way to that elusive product-market fit, and these memos provide a glimpse of those winning entrepreneurs before they were famous. Explore our Memos.
A few of our partners, across disciplines and stages, connect directly with entrepreneurs through podcasts and share insights on how founders and teams can build, lead, and serve the industries they’re looking to revolutionize.
On Cloud Giants, you’ll hear the conversations Byron Deeter has with exceptional cloud CEOs that have taken their businesses through IPO success.
On A Healthy Dose, Steve Kraus and his co-host and friend Trevor Price of Oxeon Partners interview experts, leaders, and practitioners from the healthcare industry.
On This Is Series A, Talia Goldberg and Jeremy Levine talk to early-stage founders and internet philosophers about building startups and what keeps them inspired every day.
Our growing community
In February, we hosted more than 50 founders at our B2B Marketplace Summit to discuss emerging trends in B2B commerce and payments, and we walked away convinced we’re on the cusp of a B2B purchasing renaissance that will grow dozens of $1 billion+ companies.
Our fifth annual Cloud 100 Celebration, the definitive ranking of the 100 private cloud companies, was unlike any other year as a virtual summit. Top CEOs discussed the digital industrial revolution that’s underfoot and what matters to the new guard of tech. Watch the full program on-demand.
We’re thankful for our community of leaders for sharing their best practices and insights on business challenges. Joining us this year as mentors within our community, our Operating Advisors share their functional expertise and provide counsel for our founders and leaders.
