What is the first company you invested in? Do you have any anecdotes from when you first began working together?
The first one I’ll admit to? Rent the Runway. Lots of great stories from the early days there. One of my favorite memories was how, after launching the business in November 2009, in time for the holidays but in the teeth of the Great Financial Crisis, they did their first year revenue plan in the first month! They couldn’t dry clean the dresses fast enough to satisfy all the demand. We knew we had a tiger by the tail right from the start on that one….
What do you love about working for Bain Capital Ventures?
Being part of such a high caliber, winning team and culture. This is true across Bain Capital, not just BCV. I’ve never experienced this level of talent, teamwork and humility in combination, and with such powerful results, anywhere else in my career.
