Nakul joined Lightspeed in 2014, and focuses primarily on enterprise software/SaaS investing. He is particularly interested in startups attacking greenfield opportunities in the enterprise world, created by the twin macro trends of: increasing use of mobile as the form factor on which work gets done, and increasing use of data to inform every function (sales, marketing, recruiting, customer success) within an enterprise.
Previously, Nakul worked at Battery Ventures where he focused on enterprise software investing. At Battery, Nakul helped lead the firm’s investments in category defining companies such as Marketo, BlueJeans Networks, Gainsight, Intacct, 6Sense and Yesware.
