"Lightspeed and Jeremy are leaders in media, namely video, investment. My relationship with Jeremy was built over the course of years as we discussed the industry, traded notes and brainstormed. The firm is truly entrepreneur centric. When it was time for me to start Cheddar, the process with Lightspeed was enlightening, rigorous, and fast. And these themes have characterized our work together since that day."
