Index Ventures Partner Mike Volpi is our esteemed guest in the TechCrunch TV studio this week for our Ask A VC show. As you may remember, you can submit questions for Volpi either in the comments or here, and we’ll ask them during the show.
Volpi, who focuses on investments in both enterprise software and consumer Internet, joined Index in July 2009. He is on the boards of Path, Sonos, Lookout, Hortonworks, Soundcloud, Big Switch Networks, Zuora, Foodily, and Storsimple.
Prior to his career as a VC, Volpi was Cisco’s chief strategy officer and was also previously the senior vice president and general manager of the company’s Routing and Service Provider Technology Group (at the time, an $11 billion business for Cisco). During his tenure as CSO, Cisco acquired more than 70 companies.
Considering Volpi’s board seats on both consumer and enterprise companies, we’re curious about what his advice is for entrepreneurs when choosing board members. He also should have some interesting views on enterprise data and where the market is headed.
