A master of many traits, Mark has been able to find success at the intersection of technology, business, and now VC. Having founded and exited two companies after a long stint at Accenture, he can clearly claim he has been at “Both Sides of the Table”. It was this varied skill-set that led us to nominate him as VC of the week.
Name: Mark Suster
Company: Upfront Ventures
Blog: BOTHSIDES OF THE TABLE (One of our liked blogs!)
Bio: He has worked in programming/consulting at Accenture, started and sold two companies, and received his MBA from Booth for good measure (triple threat!?). More details can be found here.
Miscellaneous/Interesting Facts: Besides his background, we are very fond of his “scrappiness with a purpose” mantra. While C:V. has yet to raise an A round (lets just say our MAU’s aren’t there yet…), we do appreciate the ROI argument made in the case of a dedicated admin.
