I admire that founders have the courage to take the risk—to put pressure on their lives, both personally and professionally, in order to build something from nothing.
I grew up in Casablanca, Morocco where I enjoyed my time playing soccer, reading Japanese manga and studying mathematics. Our public schools didn’t have many resources, so I had to study on my own. Eventually, I got into Ecole Polytechnique in France.
One internship changed the course of my career. I was building a machine-learning model for an ad trading firm, but I was much more excited about understanding how the company worked. I realized that the business world was much more interesting to me.
At Bain, I experienced the importance of great company culture and at Silver Lake I had the chance to see what best-in-class late stage tech businesses are. Partnering with founders at Sequoia allows me to be part of the company-building adventure from the start—it’s a privilege to work with daring founders in their journey.

I like spending time in different areas. If a business has the potential to disrupt how we live and work, I’m excited to learn about it.
Every founder is different, but they all have a story of why they decided to drop everything and start their company. I look for founders who have a unique insight and are obsessed with winning.Get in touch with Anas
