BLAKE BARTLETT

Blake joined OV in 2013 and has led investments in companies like Highspot, Calendly, Expensify, Postscript and Cypress, among others.

In 2016, Blake personally coined the term “product-led growth,” and continues to be a thought leader in the community as it has embraced PLG as the future of software.

Buying power has shifted for business software, and end users are the new gatekeepers. End users want a customer journey that begins with product-led self-service, rather than human-led sales conversations.

 

Prior to OpenView, Blake was an investor at Battery Ventures, where he helped lead investments in companies like Glassdoor (acq. by Recruit Holdings), Wayfair (NYSE:W), and Q2 Holdings (NYSE:QTWO).
