VC Investing with Bruce Cleveland

May 10, 2019

PUBLISHED BY Service Academy

Bruce Cleveland attended the United States Military Academy and is a Founding Partner at Wildcat Venture Partners, a venture firm that invests in market disruptors and category leaders. Their differentiation as an early stage B2B and B2B2C venture firm is based upon the fact that each Wildcat general partner has been an entrepreneur, a member of a founding team, and/or an investor in a startup that has gone from ideation to a $B+ outcome.  Based upon their significant and sustained performance, they have been independently ranked as one of the top early stage B2B investment teams in the venture industry.

In this episode, Bruce and I discuss:

  • His experience as a founding member of companies that have achieved $B+ successes
  • What he looks for from an entrepreneur when making an investment
  • Why he invests primarily in B2B enterprise companies involved in making digital transformations
