Lightspeed partner, Luke Beseda, will be visiting MIT to host a session for students interested in learning about VC/startups/entrepreneurship. Lightspeed Venture Partners is an early stage investor in both enterprise and consumer companies, including Snapchat, Nest, Nutanix, Docker, and GrubHub.

Luke will give insight into what trends VCs are seeing in the tech ecosystem and Lightspeed’s investment philosophy. As summer/graduation approaches and many students are thinking of career options, he will offer perspective on how to think about various career choices including working at large tech companies, starting a company, or joining a startup. For those interested in experiencing entrepreneurship over a summer in a risk-free setting, he will also cover the Lightspeed Summer Fellowships.

Food & beverages will be provided.
