JAY MADHESWARAN

Partner, Lightspeed Ventures

Jay has always been captivated by the power of the human imagination. At his core, he views it as the most crucial tool humanity has to positively impact the world. So it should come as no surprise that at Lightspeed, he focuses the majority of his time and energy on nurturing the imaginations of entrepreneurs and helping develop their ideas into reality. As a partner at Lightspeed, Jay brings a deep understanding of the Enterprise Infrastructure space and helps bridge the gap between anticipating trends and making the best investment decisions. And as much as he loves technology, he recharges by turning off all electronics and spending quality time in nature. From hiking in the Palo Alto foothills to exploring Half Moon Bay, being in nature quiets his mind and brings unity to his ideas. Jay also grew up meditating and it remains a daily practice to increase clarity and focus. “As a VC, part of my job is to be able to see the future,” said Jay. “Meditation has been a huge tool in helping give me the space and time needed to contemplate where the world is going and fuel my creativity.”
