The VentureFizz Podcast: Chris Lynch - CEO and Executive Chairman of AtScale

For the 104th episode of our podcast, I interviewed Chris Lynch, CEO and Executive Chairman of AtScale.

Chris is a serial entrepreneur and operator who has a tremendous track record at building successful tech companies like Vertica, Acopia Networks, Arrowpoint Communications, and others. He also co-founded and was a General Partner at Accomplice, a VC firm where he led investments in early-stage companies.

He’s back into an operating role with AtScale, the global leader in data warehouse virtualization. The company has raised $120M in funding, including a $50M Series D round which was announced this past December and led by Morgan Stanley.

In this episode of our podcast, we cover lots of topics, like:

  • Chris’ background and what his paper route taught him about entrepreneurship.
  • A walk through the different companies and his experience as an investor.
  • All about his current company AtScale, including what the company does, the story of how he got involved, and what the plans are for the Boston office.
  • How he learned to manage and build sales teams.
  • Advice for founders trying to build out their go-to-market sales strategy.
  • His charitable work with the St. Baldrick’s Foundation and why it means so much to him.
  • Plus, a lot more.
