Former NeuGroup Tech20 member Eric Ball describes his transition from treasurer to VC investor and more in our debut podcast.
Welcome to the inaugural edition of the NeuGroup Insights Podcast! We kick things off with former Oracle treasurer and Tech20 member Eric Ball, a longtime NeuGroup friend who is now general partner and co-founder of Impact Venture Capital—just one of numerous hats he wears. He’s also co-founder and chairman of capital markets startup CapConnect+, chairman of the special purpose acquisition company Archimides Tech SPAC Partners and a board advisor to Kyriba.
- In his interview with NeuGroup senior director Anne Friberg, Eric shares a range of insights about treasury technology, fintechs he’s investing in and watching, and how treasury skills have paid off in evaluating fintechs in the treasury and Office of the CFO space.
- “When I transitioned from a treasury role to a startup CFO role and then to venture, those analytical skills that one gets in treasury were certainly relevant,” he said. “I would say that venture investing requires a blend of art and science, and treasury helps with both,” he tells Anne.
