This success led him to continue on this path, making a small profit with each business he started and sold. All was going well until the company he was building after law school collapsed.

We had the great pleasure of having Ben Metcalfe on our podcast who in addition to having a very debonair accent, has am amazing story related to his journey into the world of Silicon Valley and entrepreneurship.
 
Ben’s journey to becoming a VC, he's now a partner at Ridge Ventures. Ben started in the early days of the internet in his native England where he worked as software engineer and product manager for the B.B.C news website.

Kevin Smith describes The Vault as an experiment founded with an original idea to create a better place for startups to grow and accelerate. The space itself is beautifully designed with a sophisticated retro speakeasy feel. You walk downstairs into The Vault and are surrounded by exposed brick and beams in a building that itself goes back before the big SF earthquake of 1906. Now in its 4th year of operation, The Vault has grown into a full stack innovation ecosystem with hundreds of events and thousands of people flowing through its spaces every year.  The focus is on helping startups accelerate their growth by creating an intentional space that creates opportunities for collaboration as well as hosting a robust platform of events, workshops, boot camps, founder happy hours, and invite only events for investors.
