Stefan Cohen

  • Partner
  • Bay Area

Stefan leads investments across infrastructure software, security, and crypto infrastructure (decentralized and centralized). He focuses on partnering with exceptional founders, as early as possible (from Seed onwards), who are building infrastructure for the modern internet.

Prior to joining BCV in 2016, Stefan scaled Turbonomic from Series A through Series D, and the company went on to be acquired by IBM for $2 billion. At Turbonomic, Stefan held a variety of strategy and operational leadership roles across finance, operations and sales. Through this experience, he developed a deep understanding of internet infrastructure and the IT and security rails that enterprises need in order to conduct business.

Stefan studied economics as an undergraduate but is a technologist at heart, coding for personal projects and often found tinkering with crypto protocols. When Stefan isn’t near his computer he is usually spending time in nature either cycling, skiing, or kiteboarding.
