David Cowan is one of the world’s leading investors across cloud infrastructure, cybersecurity, consumer and space technology, launching Bessemer’s practices in the Silicon Valley office. Known for taking chances on the unorthodox, David was the first venture investor in tech’s most beloved video game streaming platform, Twitch, which was later acquired by Amazon.

David has co-founded three cybersecurity companies incubated within Bessemer’s offices: VeriSign (IPO), serving as initial Chairman and CFO; Good Technology (fka Visto, acquired by Blackberry) serving as CEO, and Defense.net (acquired by F5).

He is in the Forbes Midas List Hall of Fame and has appeared on the Midas List 14 times since 2001.

He is smart, creative, humble (a BIG difference in VC's), highly experienced and a great guy to have on your side in a firefight!
