Listen to an excellent conversation between our Managing Partner Carlos Espinal and Philippe Boteri, Partner at Accel and a co-investor in companies such as Seedcamp-backed UIPath (NYSE: PATH) and Synthesia.

Philippe shares the story of his foray into tech during the dotcom boom, how he became an investor and the key learnings of his 15+ years-long career in VC. He also reflects on some of the most iconic investments he has made over the years, including UIPath and DocuSign.

Philippe and Carlos explore the potential of Generative AI and discuss our co-investment in Synthesia, an AI video creation platform Accel has recently backed.
