A couple of updates from Pointnineland

If you had a look at our team page in the recent past you may have noticed some changes. Well, to be honest, I don’t think anybody would notice changes to our team page even if we replaced Clément’s profile pic with a unicorn, but hey, I need an introduction for this post.

So here goes.

After more than five years at Point Nine, Rodrigo has transitioned to a Venture Partner role. As a Venture Partner, Rodrigo will spend about half of his time taking care of his many #p9family babies (some of which have become handsome teenagers). During the other two halves (LOL) he will do some exciting new things in Spain, his old and new home. Stay tuned!

Jenny has left us after three years to join Typeform as their new Director of People Operations. While we’re sad to see her go, we can’t blame her – Typeform is just an awesome company, and it’s hard to compete with Barcelona’s sunny weather and beaches. In any case, we’re super happy that Jenny will stay a part of the #p9family! (We know who’s going to moderate the HR track at the next Founder Summit.)

We’re thrilled that hot on the heels of Andreas Bodczek and Renaud Visage, Zack Urlocker has joined us as a portfolio advisor! Zack and I got to know each other many years ago when Zack joined Zendesk as COO and helped the company grow revenue by around 10x in about 2.5 years. Since our inaugural SaaS Founder Meetup in 2012, Zack has joined almost all of our annual founder meetups as a special guest and has provided invaluable advice to many P9 founders. After all those years we thought it’s time to make things official. Welcome aboard, Zack!

Zack has not only been instrumental in the success of four unicorns (Duo Security, Zendesk, MySQL, Active Software), he also wrote a rock opera and is about to publish a novel.

Ever since our very first PNC SaaS Founder Meetup in San Francisco back in 2012, events have been an important way for us to bring our portfolio founders together, as well as to connect with local tech communities. In that perspective, we’ve been thinking about hiring a full-time event manager for some time, and we’re super happy to have found the perfect person with Oana. She already kick-started our #P9EUTour, and the next stops are Kiev on April 24th and Berlin on May 9th 🍾.

Last but not least, Louis has been upgraded to Principal at Point Nine, and Paula has been promoted to Legal and Operations Manager. Well deserved! 💕
