On this episode of the Austinpreneur podcast, we’re joined by Ben Metcalfe, Principal at Ridge Ventures. While he’s a VC now, his career contains many other notable achievements, too. Back in the day he was a founder, working on a startup called WP Engine. He also ran public policy and innovation at Uber for a while.
Ben came along with us on the Texas Startup Roadshow, and we were fortunate to be able to chat with him for a bit. Tune into this episode to hear our discussion about Ben’s journey from Founder to VC, why authenticity is key to Austin’s startup ecosystem, and the two things every entrepreneur seeking funding needs to keep in mind.
