Rob Kenedi has a coffee with Matthew Liebowitz, partner at Plaza Ventures. Liebowitz talks about their approach to growth investing in Series A enterprise-focused SaaS startups and the fact that the fund is always raising capital rather than in huge lump sums.

He also talks about the partner side of working at Plaza: what failure looks like when investing in this later phase of a startup’s development, and how partners are compensated only on performance of the portfolio.

Disclosure: TWG – where Rob serves as Entrepreneur in Residence – is an investor in one of Plaza Ventures’ funds.
