We’re focused on an investment thesis we call Cloud Intelligence. All of our investments in 2016 connected to this thinking including investments in Machine Intelligence, IoT, SaaS, Marketing Automation and Open Source.
We’re excited to have worked with Core groups in these areas and to continue investing in them, as well as emerging areas, in the upcoming year.
4. Contribute to the Startup Community
We’re finding great advisors by tapping into an amazing community of entrepreneurs, CEOs, and executives who are passionate about learning, mentoring, and helping each other. We believe community is something you do, not something you have, so in 2016 we gathered hundreds of entrepreneurs for nearly two-dozen dinners and events, curated consistent with our Core Community, by domain, stage and function.
As part of sharing this experience we also launched the new Startup Secrets website to highlight what we’re learning about building enduring companies.
