We welcomed Kobie Fuller, General Partner at Upfront Ventures, as our special guest for the August 2019 High Alpha Speaker Series.

Kobie joined Upfront in 2016 after having previously been an investor at Accel. Prior to Accel, Kobie was the Chief Marketing Officer at LA-based REVOLVE, one of the largest players in the global fashion e-commerce ecosystem. He has deep knowledge of emerging sectors including VR and AR and was an early investor in Oculus and ExactTarget.

Earlier in his career, Kobie helped found OpenView Venture Partners and was an investor at Insight Venture Partners. Kobie graduated from Harvard University, where he still holds the track and field team’s record for the 400M.

High Alpha Partner Eric Tobias sat down for a fireside chat to discuss Kobie’s journey into VC, the Los Angeles startup community, and the future of software and tech.
