Venture Trailblazers is an exclusive, invite-only event series that connects leading investors, founders, and ecosystem leaders from across the globe to discuss the latest trends in startups and venture capital. For this edition, we welcome Barry Eggers (Founding Partner of Lightspeed Venture Partners) for a Fireside Chat with Adeo Ressi (Chairman of Founder Institute, CEO of VC Lab). The goal of Venture Trailblazers is to educate and connect the founders, leaders, mentors, and investors across the global Founder Institute, VC Lab, and FI Venture Networks.
About the Speaker: Barry Eggers (Founding Partner at Lightspeed, Chair of the NVCA Board of Directors) 

Barry is a Founding Partner at Lightspeed Venture Partners, a global VC firm whose vast portfolio includes Affirm, Bonobos, Calm, Docker, Epic Games, Goop, Grubhub, The Honest Company, Kiva, Mulesoft, Navan, Nest, Nutanix, Snap, Telegram, and many more. Of the 400+ companies they have partnered with, a third have either IPO’d or been acquired.

In addition to building out the firm, Barry specializes in information technology infrastructure with a focus on analytic platforms, cloud, IoT, networking, and emerging infrastructure. And yet, he insists technology isn’t his strong suit.

“I’m an economics undergrad, so I don’t lead with technology IQ,” he says. “I like to rely on EQ.”

Barry is also Chair of the National Venture Capital Association (NVCA) Board of Directors.

Venture Trailblazers is presented by the Founder Institute, the world's largest pre-seed startup accelerator; and VC Lab, the leading venture capital accelerator for emerging managers worldwide.

This event is strictly invite-only, and reserved for the Founder Institute and VC Lab networks: including Local Leaders, Alumni, Mentors, Investors, Partners, and Enrolled Founders/ Fund Managers.
