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. When the company decided to move employees from London to Manchester, and Ben's appeal to move to SF didn't get approved, he decided to take a risk and head to SF on his own.
