Who am I? Kevin Higgins
I began this blog as a way to write about my passion for startups, venture capital and finance. I plan to update this periodically with posts and thoughts of my own and my ramblings here in no way reflect the views of my current employer (#disclaimer).
My professional background is split between 4 years in Corporate Finance at EMC Corporation (and their family of companies) in Boston and the past 3+ years split between a valuation and product management role in the Venture ecosystem at Silicon Valley Bank in San Francisco.
During my time at SVB, I have been very fortunate to work with some of the most interesting companies in all of Venture. I have worked with companies from their seed phase all the way through companies nearing an IPO. I covered predominantly Consumer focused companies (Brands, eCommerce, future of retail, marketplaces, On-Demand, etc.) but was also exposed to SaaS, FinTech, IOT, and other sectors. As a result, I have had an amazing viewpoint into the amazing world that is Venture!
I went to Providence College as an undergrad (#GoFriars!) and I completed a M.S. in Finance at Boston College. I grew up in the Boston area but currently reside in San Francisco.
I am always interested in meeting other founders, investors, and anyone interested in entrepreneurship! Reach out to me on LinkedIn
