Ben Siscovick and Andrew Cove gave a presentation on Tuesday, 7/12, at General Assembly on the business of big data. This is something we think about daily at IA Ventures and rests squarely at the core of our investment thesis. The discussion covered:
What is Big Data?
The characteristics of a Big Data company
Creating competitive barriers in Big Data
The Big Data team
We had a packed house and the discussion was lively and interesting. If you didn't have a chance to make this session, we'll probably do a repeat at GA in a few months and maybe another one via Skillshare at some point.
