A Note from OpenView’s Founder
Since our founding ten years ago, OpenView has been singularly focused on investing in and helping build the best expansion stage software companies. We’ve made it our mission to not only seek out these companies, but to interact with and understand the people behind them. We invest in people first and foremost.
Through BUILD, we’re giving our community a close up look at what it takes to build and scale a company from the ground up. These stories come directly from the founders, leaders and operators — the builders and makers.
The ups and downs, tactics and advice laid out here provide an intimate account of a startup’s life. We know that while a VC can support a growing business, the building blocks that create the next billion dollar company are laid by those on the inside. Thank you to the many entrepreneurs and operators who shared their stories with us.
Thank you to our team for finding and developing these stories for our community. And thank you to our community for making OpenView the firm it is today, ten years on.
