Technical Venture Capital with Tim Tully

Venture capital investment has continued to flow into technology startups.  No one builds technology from scratch.  There are cloud services, software libraries, 3rd party services, and software platforms that modern entrepreneurs must adopt to build their products efficiently and quickly.  These layers of infrastructure are a key area for many investors.

Tim is a partner at Menlo Ventures where he invests in cloud and data infrastructure, AI/ML and cyber security.  He joins the show to discuss what goes into a smart investment.
