NexGen Partner Profile Series: Alexander Harrison (Sequoia Capital)

Continuing the series where I profile young Next generation partners who I admire for their accomplishment and personality.

Alexander Harrison (Sequoia Capital)
Alexander is incredibly affable and probably one of the most accessible Venture Capitalist one will meet. This is especially commendable for someone who has accomplished so much so quickly. I remember reaching out to him during my internship at Intel Capital, and not only did he promptly reply, he also stayed engaged till we could figure out a mutually convenient time to meet up. And after that, he has been helping me and supporting my ambitions more than anyone who met someone just once would do.

Education - BA from Darthmouth College

Previous Venture Capital Job - Summit Partners

Last Job before Venture Capital - Goldman Sachs (covering communication semiconductor firms)

Positioning - Financial Services, Healthcare Technology and Services

Out of the blue deed - As a child, Alexander was a stage and TV actor

Personal Mantra - "Its not show-fun, it's show business", "All you have is your credibility"

Investing Philosophy - Alexandar works in sectors where you typically find:
1. Savvy entrepreneurs
2. Business models with strong early operating leverage
3. Ability to scale a company without heavy vc investment early on

The Drift - If you are truly ambitious and passionate, Alexander will go out of his way to help you.
