Atlanta’s Newest Unicorn to Keynote at NEXT Venture Pitch 2021
FullStory’s Scott Voigt Returns to Greenville to Share His Journey
September 13, 2021 (Greenville, SC) – NEXT Venture Pitch has added new speakers to the September 16th event, as Scott Voigt of FullStory will take the stage alongside others to share details from his journey in entrepreneurship.
To say that FullStory has experienced significant growth since they appeared on-stage at NEXT Venture Pitch 2018 would be an understatement: in August, they announced the closing of their Series D funding round of a little over $100 million, resulting in a $1.8 billion valuation. Their funding round was led by new investor Permira, alongside FullStory’s existing investors, including Kleiner Perkins, GV, Stripes, Dell Technologies Capital, Salesforce Ventures, and Glynn Capital.
The agenda for the event continues to grow, with a panel of experienced venture capital partners set to join the Entrepreneur Leadership Series to participate in an unscripted Q&A with local founders and entrepreneurs. Limited tickets to this session, as well as the afternoon conference, are still available.
