Jessica Cohen is a VC investor with Emergence Capital, a highly focused venture firm based in Silicon Valley that has backed companies like Salesforce, Zoom, Box, Yammer and Veeva.
She was previously a seed stage investor with Partech, and the co-founder of StartUpper Academy - the first of its kind and biggest startup contest in Seine-Saint-Denis; partnered with The Family, Station F and La French Tech. Previously, she received her masters from the Sorbonne in Paris.
Jessica will be live in conversation with Passionfruit co-founder Raffi Salama, and the webinar will give a select group of founders her perspective on what it takes to cross the chasm from Seed to Series A. Expect the conversation to cover her non-negotiables when she evaluates opportunities, the evolving world of fundraising and her contrarian views on pathways to reaching Series A scale.
There will be a 20 minute interview with Jessica, followed by a 15 min Q+A exclusively for those invited to attend.
