RoadUntraveled: Bessemer Venture Partners’ Elliott Robinson on mentorship, investing and unit economics during COVID19


From Microsoft to helping launch a growth equity platform for Bessemer Venture Partners, hear how Elliott and the BVP team are “watching the world” and preparing their portfolio companies for success in times of uncertainty.

Key Takeaways:

It is critical to “dial in” to the leaders around you who have deep expertise in the fields you don’t. Sharing those findings with portfolio companies is value-add as an investor.

Unit economics like cac payback, churn and gross margins still matter, and some business models will be better able to handle this type of change.
