The closing session at our last MarTech Conference in San Francisco was an all-star fireside chat, “Follow the Martech Money: VCs, IPOs, and M&A”, with three leading venture capitalists and one of the most influential investment bankers in the marketing tech space:
- Neeraj Agrawal of Battery Ventures
- Ashu Garg of Foundation Capital
- Ajay Agarwal of Bain Capital Ventures
- Brian Andersen of LUMA Partners
They engaged in a candid discussion about how they view the forces shaping this industry — platforms, business models, marketing sizing, emerging categories, and the evolving role of Google, Facebook, and LinkedIn in marketing technology — and what they’re looking for in new opportunities:
Big thanks to Ajay, Ashu, Brian, and Neeraj — this was a fascinating chat.
