Seedcamp Podcast, Episode 14: Spencer Lazar of General Catalyst

In the ‘Seedcamp Podcast Series’ we talk with key people in the tech startup industry to hear their stories and gleam key advice and learnings from their experiences.

While in NYC on our US Trip, we had the chance to catch up with Spencer Lazar of General Catalyst. Spencer has been a long-time friend and is one of those few VCs who has been a product manager turned VC turned founder turned VC again, so it was great to catch up with him and hear his story.

From GC’s website: Spencer focuses on early stage software & internet investments, with a particular interest in online marketplaces, mobile applications, web services, and enterprise IT.

He was previously the cofounder of Spontaneously, Inc – an iOS development studio. Prior to that he was an early stage software & internet investor at Accel in London, where he sourced and worked with companies including Hailo, Birchbox, Bonobos, ForgeRock, and Qriously. Preceding that, he was a growth equity investor at Insight Venture Partners, where he sourced & helped manage the firm’s investments in 3P Learning, BeyondTrust, and GenArts. He started his career as a product manager at the mobile enterprise software developer, ScrollMotion.
