About this event

Startup UCLA presents the fourth talk in our 2022 Summer Accelerator Speaker Series. Join us for a conversation with Robert Jadon, Director of the Summer Accelerator and Co-Founder of Startup UCLA and Barry Eggers, founding partner of Lightspeed Venture Partners.

A founding partner at Lightspeed, Barry is something of a Silicon Valley pioneer. In addition to building out the firm, Barry specializes in information technology infrastructure with a focus on analytic platforms, cloud, IoT, networking, and emerging infrastructure. Barry has been able to foster strong relationships throughout Silicon Valley, which he says are just as important as big ideas when it comes to building great companies.

Over the past two decades, the Lightspeed team has backed hundreds of entrepreneurs and helped build more than 400 companies globally, including Snap, Affirm, Nest, Nutanix, AppDynamics, and GrubHub, among many more. Lightspeed and its affiliates currently manage $10.5B across the global Lightspeed platform, with investment professionals and advisors in Silicon Valley, Israel, India, China, Southeast Asia and Europe.

Barry studied economics at UCLA before attending Stanford Business School for his MBA. He currently serves as Chair of the National Venture Capital Association (NVCA) Board of Directors. Please join us to learn more about Barry's experience as a venture capitalist!
