Meet the Investor: Aseem Datar

AUTHOR: Erika Shaffer | November 18, 2021

We are trying something a little different this week.  I sat down with our new Partner, Aseem Datar, to talk to him about his journey to being a venture investor at Madrona.  Aseem worked at Microsoft for 17 years in a wide variety of roles from developer to global sales to helping to build Azure into an over $20B ARR business.  We talked about growing up in Mumbai surrounded by Jugaar – the Hindi word that means Hustle plus a lot more, how he got to Seattle, to Microsoft and to Madrona and what he looks for in a company.

Aseem also didn’t waste any time and led our seed funding of SpiceAI which is innovating in the Low Code AI space, helping developers integrate AI into their applications and he talks about that team and problem space too.  You can listen here to the 20 minute podcast or find it on all of the major platforms! Aseem’s bio  (and contact info!) is here.
