Byron Deeter is a leading investor in SaaS and Cloud – to date, 19 of Byron’s investments are valued above $1 billion, including 10 IPOs and counting. He co-authors Bessemer’s iconic 10 Laws of Cloud Computing and the annual State of the Cloud Report. He created the Bessemer Forbes Cloud 100 and BVP Nasdaq Emerging Cloud Index and works closely with many of the best founders in the cloud world. Byron first raised a Series A with Bessemer Venture Partners back in 2000, as CEO and founder of Trigo Technologies. His company grew to be one of the first global SaaS companies, reaching profitability and was successfully sold to IBM. Byron foresaw that cloud computing would not only change the way people built new technologies but also how The Cloud would systematically run the world. In 2005, Byron returned to Bessemer, this time to lead the fund’s global cloud practice.

Elliott Robinson is a partner in Bessemer’s San Francisco office where he focuses primarily on growth investments in SaaS and cloud companies. He looks to partner with companies and management teams that are defining their market category while also maintaining a set of core values that will allow them to grow their leadership position. Elliott started his career with Syncom Venture Partners, investing in both early and growth-stage enterprise software and frontier tech companies such as CLEAR and Iridium Satellite (IPO). After six years with Syncom, he joined Georgian Partners, investing in a number of successful growth-stage software companies such as Kinnser (acquired by Mediware), TurnItIn (acquired by Advance), and eSentire. Prior to joining Bessemer, Elliott was a partner with M12, leading investments in companies such as Livongo, BlueVine, Trusona, and Cooler Screens.
