Our Team is Growing

By Sue Kwon, Head of Marketing and Communications

We’re dusting off our Medium publication with a plan to unleash stories and announcements about our team, founders, and topics that are so interesting, you’ll come back for more. Let’s start off with this straightforward bit of news.

Comcast Ventures is growing. We’re looking to add a Principal and an Associate to our San Francisco-based enterprise-focused investment team.

The roles are different, but the goal is shared. The team works hard to bring in opportunities to invest in founders building companies that are transforming the way businesses do business, grow, and empower employees. Let’s name-drop a few of the B2B startups we have invested in: Accolade, Aporeto, BitSight, Slack, and DocuSign.

There’s a lot of behind-the-scenes work that goes into finding and forming these partnerships.
