After a Holiday hiatus, Ask a VC is back and we’re kicking off the new year with Jason Green of Emergence Capital. Emergence was started to fund the software-as-a-service craze of the early 2000s. That wave has had mixed results, but Emergence had several of the big hits including Salesforce.com and SuccessFactors. Green himself was also an investor in hits like DoubleClick, aQuantive and AskJeeves.
Enterprise software fell out of favor during the Web 2.0 consumer boom, but now, many investors believe a new wave of more disruptive, more sophisticated cloud-based services is bubbling up. Emergence already has one strong horse in that race with Yammer. Wonder how they view the upcoming Salesforce.com Chatter v. Yammer battle royale? I intend on asking Green.
What do you want to ask him? We’re taping early tomorrow morning so send in your questions now to askavc(at)techcrunch(dot)com.
