What is the first company you invested in?
I first met Will Falcon over lunch at a Thai restaurant near the Facebook offices in New York, long before he incorporated the company that would become Lightning AI. I remember feeling immediately impressed with his vision for how his new open source project, already popular with machine learning researchers, could evolve into an ecosystem of tools for refining and deploying ML applications.
What do you love about working for Bain Capital Ventures?
What I respect and value the most is our willingness to do the right thing, and to optimize for long-term relationships. It’s often easier to choose immediate gain, but I have seen our team repeatedly opt to make tough calls and double-down in support of founders and companies.
