    I worked at Bowery Capital for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - Bowery was a great forum for learning and a stepping stone for my career in growth-stage SaaS Marketing. - Mike & Nic always listened to and heard my opinions and suggestions—acting on them when appropriate. - The team is experts in the early-stage B2B SaaS space and I was always a fan of how detailed they (we) were in evaluating potential investments. - Generally positive work environment with an emphasis on working...

    Cons

    - Was with the team for just under 4 years from AOLV to Bowery so it wasn't all smooth sailing, but I can honestly say it was an overall incredible work experience. Wouldn't trade my time at Bowery for anything else.

    Advice to Management

    I would love to see more alumni events.

    - Bowery has emerged as an elite early stage firm in NY and the firm is often a 'first call' for entrepreneurs on both coasts - Partners give tons of responsibility to junior team - Firm adds real value to portfolio companies, not passive investors - Great launchpad for other VC roles or exec role at a startup

    Cons

    If you like consumer focused tech or later stage investing like growth equity then BC isn't for you

    I worked at Bowery Capital part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Working at Bowery was a formative opportunity to learn alongside a dedicated, thoughtful and ambitious team building a premier venture capital brand. My time at Bowery was my first foray into venture capital and I owe a great deal to Mike and the team for enabling me to build my career in this industry. Mike literally taught me the basics of being a venture capitalist. He set an example for how to chart a compelling firm...

    I worked at Bowery Capital full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Cons

    - Second what was said it being a self-starter culture, a lot of runway for personal / professional growth but not a hyper structured environment where people are going to be micromanaging; as is often the case in VC often you have to craft your own schedule and try to add value rather than wait for inbound assignments

    Advice to Management

    -Keep up the great work, congrats on the recent Moat exit

    I worked at Bowery Capital full-time

    Pros

    -- Raising $100M in your first two funds is no mean feat; Mike, Nic and the team have gotten there by being some of the most discerning, highest-integrity, best-connected people in enterprise software. -- Only the most jaded of employees could escape feeling constantly floored by the high-caliber track records of entrepreneurs we worked with and learned from. -- There's a lot of trust, and many learning opportunities...

    Cons

    -- This isn't a role where you wait for work to show up in your inbox. As with most venture roles, it's important to be a self-starter in pursuing the experiences that you want.
