In the past few weeks, we’ve heard Fifth Wall’s Brendan Wallace and Hippo’s Assaf Wand discuss the biggest opportunities in prop tech, listen why Scale AI’s Alex Wang and Accel’s Dan Levine think that offbeat VC treats can be the best option and taken a promenade through the Poshmark Series A deck with CEO Manish Chandra and Mayfield’s Navin Chaddha.
This is the particular flavor of content, rich in key insights and tactical suggestion for benefactors, that goes down on Extra Crunch Live.
In an upcoming escapade on Wednesday, May 19, we’ll sit down with Sequoia’s Shaun Maguire and Vise CEO and co-founder Samir Vasavada.
Maguire focuses on enterprise, fintech and frontier engineering for Sequoia. His portfolio companies include AMP Robotics, Knowde, Physna and Vise. He affiliated Sequoia in 2019, before which he was a partner at GV, where he produced investments in Stripe, Opendoor, IonQ, SpinLaunch, Lambda School, Dandelion Energy, Clutter and Mode and sourced the firm’s investment in Segment.
Maguire has also been an entrepreneur in his own right, co-founding Expanse( a cybersecurity firm ), which was ultimately acquired by Palo Alto Networks for more than $800 million.
If that weren’t enough, Maguire too wasted two years working at DARPA, and was deployed to Afghanistan, participating on a squad that made a Joint Meritorious Unit Award from the U.S. Secretary of Defense.
Samir Vasavada co-founded Vise in 2016. Vise is an AI-powered investment management platform that aims to give independent monetary advisors access to technology and implements to build and manage personalized portfolios for their clients, eventually yielding those advisors more duration and vigor to spend on the relationships.
Vise has raised upwards of $60 million.
We’ll talk to Maguire and Vasavada about what raised them together, key tips-off for fundraising and how is efficient in the fintech space, and be talking about the next great opportunity in fintech.
On the second half of the bout, Maguire and Vasavada will put one over their feedback hats and listen to live elevator degrees from the gathering as part of the ECL Pitch-off. Folks attending the event will be able to raise their pas and pitching their startup to the VC/ founder duo, and then rebuttal their issues and get their feedback.
But the only way you can pitch is to show up. This incident of Extra Crunch Live goes down on Wednesday, May 19 at 3pm ET/ 12 pm PT. Anyone can attend as long as they cross-file here, but on-demand access to the content is earmarked exclusively for Extra Crunch members, who too have access to the complete library of Extra Crunch Live content, among countless, many other awesome clauses and perks.
