Guest Speaker

Cack Wilhelm, General Partner

Institutional Venture Partners

About the Speaker

Cack Wilhelm is a General Partner at IVP. As a partner to CEOs, Cack draws most on her time as a professional athlete and her experience in enterprise sales at Oracle and Cloudera. Cack started her career as a runner for Nike, competing on a global level for two years. As any athlete knows, professional or otherwise, every ounce of energy invested in preparation increases your competitive edge. If you’re targeted in training and tenacious enough to persevere, it translates on race day. In sport and in company-building, there’s no substitute for putting in the time and effort—no shortcut to success. In her role in venture, Cack thinks of being a partner to founders and execs in the same way that she thinks about being on a sports team: we all have one another’s best interests in mind, and we’re united through a shared understanding and a common goal. Both inside the walls of the firm and beyond them. Cack strives to go the extra mile for the companies she works with, leveraging her knowledge of enterprise sales to contribute in meaningful ways, whether by surfacing candidates for key roles, providing benchmarking and contextual data, making introductions or asking the right question at the right time. From technology that enables cloud and data infrastructure to stacks emerging for AI or information security, Cack works with companies developing underlying infrastructures for autonomous and business applications and for consumer experiences. That means that she gets to live in the future every day, hearing founders talk about the reality they aspire to create and the gaping holes they see and seek to fill. Cack believes that working together toward their vision and seeing it come to fruition is the sweetest victory of all.
