Peter Rojas Swung by this Week

There is always another bus

Happy Sunday, founders and friends.

We have some new signups in the email list this week- welcome! Allow us to re-introduce ourselves. Bloom Venture Partners is an investment first with an early-stage VC fund and PE fund focused on mid-market SaaS acquisitions.

Every week, we deliver a copy of the weekly bloom to your inbox to bring you a quick update on all things Bloom, SaaS, Private Equity, and VC.

Let’s dive into this week’s update…


the full bloom🎙

Peter Rojas, Partner at Betaworks Ventures, joins Bart Macdonald to talk early-stage investing, social gaming, and first-time founder challenges.

On this episode, Peter and Bart uncover the challenges a venture firm faces when investing in early-stage technology. And on the flip-side, he shares the importance of having empathy for first-time founders navigating the venture world.

This is a great listen for early-stage founders wanting to get a behind-the-curtain look at how investors think before writing a check.
