What's Hot in Enterprise IT/VC - Issue #128
By Ed Sim • Issue #128 • View online
This week I found the best readings on scaling startups ranging from Jeff Bezos’ annual letter on taking risks and listening to your customers but balancing with creating things they don’t ask for, Martin Casado interview with Matt Turck on GTM strategies for enterprise startups, and how Rippling raised $45mm without a pitch deck, on infra side Pagerduty goes public and great story on how they had difficulty raising a round 5 years ago, all about Google Next and move to multi cloud tools, and a Medium post I wrote on Automation as seen from 6 heads from Fortune 500

great point by Aaron Levie at Box - I was seed investor in GoToMeeting which was going after WebEx and Placeware back in day, creative destruction and opportunities to reinvent the old with the new are plenty in the enterprise space
