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.
