On Tuesday, April 23 teams from our Summer Launchpad, Ignite, Sprint and Prototyping Fund programs met with Morgan Polotan for Office Hours. Morgan is a Principal at Comcast Ventures where he spends his time evaluating investment opportunities, sourcing new deals, and managing the growth of existing portfolio companies.
Prior to joining Comcast, Morgan worked at Bloomberg Beta, the venture firm backed by Bloomberg. He also spent time as a software engineer at Tapad and Market-Based Management instructor at the Charles Koch Institute. Morgan earned his BS from Northeastern University.
After the meetings, I asked Morgan to share one piece of advice to founders. He shared that, "All entrepreneurs must talk to customers." Couldn't agree more - huge thanks to Morgan for swinging by the Leslie eLab!
