Catch the GC Cybersecurity Portfolio at RSA 2019

Hard to believe that RSA is almost here — March 4–8 in San Francisco. This is a premier cybersecurity event, and hundreds of companies will be there to show off their latest wares. We are quite proud of our cybersecurity portfolio. And as GC’s resident cybersecurity investor, I wanted to highlight the various booths, talks, and events where you might meet them. I’ll be spending a good deal of time at this year’s conference. Drop me a note at herrod@generalcatalyst.com if you want to get together. And without further ado…
