About the Event

Speaker: Ben Narasin, General Partner at Tenacity Venture Capital

Moderators: Danil Kislinskiy, Founder at Go Global World

Topics description: 

It is what Silicon Valley VCs look for - the type of businesses that can use their capital - and the sort of ultimate outcome that taking VC money requires. And the “Ben rule” for whether or not you should target a fund for your business.

Bio: Ben Narasin is the founding General Partner of Tenacity Venture Capital, an early-stage fund focused on formation, pre-seed, and seed investing. Prior to Tenacity, Ben was a Venture Partner at NEA, a General Partner at Canvas Ventures, and President of TriplePoint Ventures. Prior to his time as an investor, Narasin was a prolific entrepreneur and highly regarded early-stage investor with three decades of company-building expertise. Narasin has focused on emerging technologies and new markets throughout his investment career with a portfolio comprising key early successes in some of today’s fastest-growing sectors, such as fintech, digital marketplaces, mobile and connected devices. His overarching focus in seeking new investments is, in his words, “to find founders who make me say ‘wow’.”

Narasin was an entrepreneur for 25 years, culminating with the IPO of which he founded in 1993 and took public in 1999, before becoming an early-stage investor in 2007. His knack for spotting emerging trends led him to make seed investments in companies like Dropcam, Lending Club, TellApart, Kabbage, Zenefits, Rippling, Omada Health, Velo3D,, Kin Insurance, and many others.  At Canvas, he led the Series A for Transfix, and at NEA he led the Series C of Divvy which was acquired by for $2.5 billion in June 2021.

Narasin frequently writes and speaks about technology and investing, as well as food and wine, a lifelong passion. He holds a B.A. in Entrepreneurial Studies from Babson College.
