Tune in to hear actionable tips on leadership, growth, and revenue from the man himself, including how he chooses the companies he works with as an investor. Additional Resources:Donate to Hack Diversity: https://www.hackdiversity.com/LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/neerajagrawal2000/5 Traits of Successful Leaders: https://forc.mx/3BrMkHhListen to More Revenue Builders: https://forc.mx/3bfW5OdHIGHLIGHTS4 key dimensions that determine the success of companies Timing is more predictive of success than market sizeGreat product and sales processes are crucial for sustainable growthLessons learned from successful and failed investments Technical founders aren't necessarily the best CEOs The bull market is on its way out, what about it?Your company reputation is everythingHow Neeraj chooses the companies that he works withGUEST BIONeeraj joined Battery in 2000 and invests in SaaS and internet companies across all stages. He has invested in several companies that have gone on to stage IPOs, including Bazaarvoice (NASDAQ: BV); Coupa (NASDAQ: COUP); Guidewire Software (NYSE: GWRE); Marketo (NASDAQ: MKTO, acquired by Vista Equity Partners); Nutanix (NASDAQ: NTNX); Omniture (NASDAQ: OMTR, acquired by Adobe); RealPage (NASDAQ: RP); and Wayfair (NYSE: W).He also invested in several companies that have experienced M&A events, such as A Place for Mom (acquired by Warburg Pincus); AppDynamics (acquired by Cisco); Brightree (acquired by ResMed); Chef (acquired by Progress); Glassdoor (acquired by Recruit Holdings); Internet Brands (acquired by Hellman & Friedman); Kustomer (acquired by Meta); OpsGenie (acquired by Atlassian); Stella Connect (acquired by Medallia, Inc.); and VSS Monitoring (acquired by Danaher). Neeraj also played a key role in several other Battery investments including Groupon (NASDAQ: GRPN); ITA Software (acquired by Google); and Sabre (NASDAQ: SABR).Neeraj is currently on the boards of Braze (NASDAQ: BRZE), Compt, Catchpoint, Dataiku, Level AI, LogRocket, Pendo, Reify Health, Repeat, Scopely, Shortcut (formerly Clubhouse), Sprinklr (NYSE: CXM), Tealium, Wunderkind (formerly BounceX), Workato and Yesware. He is a board observer for InVision and Mattermost. Neeraj has also made seed investments in companies including 8fig, Dooly, PayStand, Proton, Reibus International and UserGems since 2020.QUOTESNeeraj on the challenge of timing your investment: "The challenge often is if you invest too early, you've got a good idea but you run out of money before the inflection point happens. And if you invest too late, somebody else captures the market. Having a sense of the timing is really important and like most things in life, luck has a lot to do with it."Neeraj on why both product and sales are crucial for success: "Ultimately, great companies are built on great products and great sales. You can kind of fake it for a while now on the sales side, but the longer you wait to put in the fundamentals, the harder it is to do later." Neeraj on how he chooses the companies that he backs: "Life's too short. If this isn't a person that I want to back from beginning to exit, they don't have the right coachability and skill to read my mind, it's probably time to move on and look at other investments."Check out John McMahon's book here: https://www.amazon.com/Qualified-Sales-Leader-Proven-Lessons/dp/0578895064

Salone Sehgal is the world's first female General Partner of a games and interactive VC fund. She co-founded Lumikai Fund, India's first early-stage interactive media and gaming VC, anchored by the world's largest games and media conglomerates. She has 15+ years of experience as a global games & new media investor, games entrepreneur, and former M&A banker. Previously, she was Principal at London Venture Partners (LVP), Europe's pioneering seed-stage gaming VC (with a track record of backing 40 companies delivering $14Bn in shareholder value). My conversation with Salone is very insightful and debunks misconceptions about venture partners, investing, and why does venture capital still repeatedly fail female founders? - How and why Salone decided to start her own fund, focusing on India as an underserved market, and female founders - How Salone approaches her team building and managed to hire 40% women to join the fund - Why there is still a barrier for women to join the venture partners world, and what we can do about it - Why the lack of women and diversity among investors is a huge missed opportunity? Even when a female-led team makes it to the deal flow evaluation meetings of VC funds, they often don't progress. Lack of female decision-makers in VC is often cited as a cause for this. There is often no one to champion the deal or resonate with the product (particularly if it's female focused). - Salone's lessons being both a founder and an investor, and how being a founder helps to be a better investor - How Salone overcame the challenges of being the "only woman" or person of color in the rooms of the corporate financial world I hope this conversation will inspire you to take a step forward in the venture world and be part of the change to have more women as investors.

This episode is all about empathy: what it is, how we can improve it, and the advantages it brings to everyone it touches. To discuss this topic, podcast host, Jessica Liao, is joined by Kate Brodock, CEO of Switch and General Partner of W Fund; Judith Martinez, Founder of InHerShoes Inc. and Social Impact Practitioner; and Corey Ponder, Creative, Curation, and Programs, Meta Content and Community Partnerships.   Judith kicks off the discussion by outlining various types of empathy. She also describes how different stakeholders can be exposed to different types of empathy in the workplace.      Kate notes that not every employee is going to become empathetic.  However, exposing stakeholders to empathy can encourage empathetic processes that then trigger increased empathetic responses throughout the organization.   Corey frames it another way. He suggests that by delivering consistently, and showing up for what users need, organizations can then build up trust with stakeholders.    After you listen, connect with podcast host Jessica Liao and guests Kate Brodock, Judith Martinez, and Corey Ponder on LinkedIn.

In der Rubrik “Investments & Exits” begrüßen wir heute Otto Birnbaum, General Partner von Revent. Otto hat die Finanzierungsrunde von LiveEO und Terabase Energy analysiert: Das Berliner SaaS Startup LiveEO hat eine Finanzierungsrunde in Höhe von 19 Millionen Euro abgeschlossen. Mithilfe von einer KI gesteuerten Software analysiert und überwacht LiveEO Satellitenbildern, um Informationen und mögliche Risiken über Vegetation und Bodenverformungen im Bereich der Infrastruktur frühzeitig zu erkennen. Mit diesen Daten können Betreiber von Eisenbahnen, Stromleitungen und Pipelines vorzeitige und notwendige Anpassungen vornehmen. Dies soll zu weniger Reiseunterbrechungen, Stromausfällen und Engpässe in der Lieferkette führen. Zudem können so Kosten gespart und die Auswirkungen des Klimawandels bekämpft werden. Die Finanzierungsrunde wird vom Londoner DeepTech-Investor MMC Ventures angeführt. Zudem beteiligen sich die Europäische Kommission, Segenia Capital, Motu Ventures, Helen Ventures, Hannover Digital Investments, Dieter von Holtzbrinck Ventures, Matterwave und die Investitionsbank Berlin an der Finanzierungsrunde. Mit dem neuen Kapital soll die globale Marktexpansion von LiveEO vorangetrieben werden. LiveEO wurde 2017 von Sven Przywarra und Daniel Seidel gegründet. Außerdem verkündete Terabase Energy letzte Woche eine Series-B-Finanzierungsrunde in Höhe von 44 Millionen US-Dollar. Der von Bill Gates initiierte CleanTech-VC-Fonds Breakthrough Energy Ventures und Prelude Ventures führen die Finanzierungsrunde an. Im Breakthrough Energy Fonds sind Namhafte Personen wie Jeff Bezos und Softbank-Gründer Masayoshi Son investiert. Des weiteren beteiligen sich SJF Venture und einige Silicon Valley-VCs. Das US-Startup Terabase Energy will Roboter nutzen, um sehr schnell effiziente und große Solaranlagen zu bauen. Diese Solarkraftwerke sollen dann Unternehmensangaben zufolge Energie im Terawatt-Bereich liefern. Das erhaltene Kapital dient zur Skalierung und verbesserung der Roboterplattform.

Before investing in real estate, Taylor belonged in the world of banking and consulting. But he didn't want his whole life to be there. Taylor talks about the books that pushed him to invest, why he thinks good investing should be boring, the red flags to take note of as passive investors, and why having FOMO is a danger to investing.  In this episode you will learn:  Once you dive into real estate, you'll know how much you didn't know  Taylor Loht on the shiny object syndrome  You can lose money on anything  What passive investors should watch out for the most in syndication  It's ok when you don't feel ok about a deal  About Taylor Loht:  Taylor is on a mission to teach Busy Professionals how they can invest in real estate without dealing with tenants, toilets, and termites. He highlights and distills the knowledge, experiences, and lessons of expert real estate investors through his podcast, YouTube Channel, and email newsletter Passive Wealth Strategies for Busy Professionals.     His goal is to help his listeners and investors build lives of abundance. He believes that building passive streams of income is the best path to wealth generation, not the typical, boring, "Don't have that $4 latte you enjoy twice a week." Enjoy your latte and buy some property!     He has partnered in over $50 million in Multifamily and Self Storage investments, as both a General Partner with his company NT Capital LLC, and Passive Investor through tax-advantaged retirement accounts.

First, a word from our sponsor:Allocate is the digital operating system for investors looking to build and manage world class private portfolios within venture capital and other technology focused private assets.

This week on the She Did That. podcast we're chatting with Arian Simone, the Co-Founder and General Partner of Fearless Fund - the first VC fund by women of color for women of color - and a serial entrepreneur, philanthropist, angel investor, author, and PR & marketing specialist. Arian received her MBA from Florida A&M and shortly after was laid off from her first job, and a few weeks later found herself staring at over 150 rejection letters from numerous companies she'd hoped would hire her. For seven months Arian lived in her car, selling clothes for gas and food money until she decided to stop waiting on others to see her potential and took matters into her own hands. Since then, she managed to go from the bottom to the top - pioneering and growing a successful PR and marketing firm (with billion-dollar corporate clients such as Sony Pictures, Universal Pictures, Walt Disney Pictures, and more), authoring of multiple best-selling books, founding Fearless Magazine and the Fearless Platform in 2010, with a mission of inspiring millennial, entrepreneurial women of color.    Now, with Fearless Fund, she has gained the confidence and multi-million dollar investments from the likes of PayPal, J.P. Morgan, Bank of America, and Costco, and partnerships with industry leaders such as Mastercard and Steve Madden.   Produced by Dear Media
