Preview: Sunday Conversation With Greylock’s Asheem Chandna (January 26)

For Sunday Conversation #8, Haywire will host Asheem Chandna of Greylock Partners on Sunday evening, January 26. Asheem is, randomly, one of the very first people I met when I moved to the Valley. I was invited to a conference graciously by Om and tried to meet new people in the hallway. Asheem was one of them. One would never have guessed by how he unassumingly moved in between sessions that, in reality, he’s one of the best enterprise and security technology investors in the world. Over time, he’s been gracious to meet for coffees, catch up on his work, share his voracious reading sources (he turned me onto to @FarnamStreet and Shane Parish), and his general advice overall as I started Haystack. So for me, personally, I was excited to videotape this discussion with Asheem because I knew we would get into his mind and how he thinks about cloud, security, and enterprise businesses and technologies today. If you’re working or investing in this space, or if you’re looking to broaden out from consumer to see what the other side of the Valley works on, these videos are a must-watch. As always, the conversation will be broken into smaller bits. I’ll post the videos next Sunday evening (January 26), and the audio will be available on Swell through SoundCloud, as always.
