First Meeting

When we first heard of Aurora, we’d known Chris for a decade through relationships at Google. Chris and his co-founders Drew and Sterling impressed us not only with their backgrounds as leaders of Waymo, Uber and Tesla, respectively, but with their dedication to their mission. After six months of breakfast meetings, we were invited to visit their Pittsburgh office. Days later, we took an inaugural ride in one of Aurora’s self-driving vehicles, and partnered with them on the Series B.
