Insights on International Scale: NUMA & Reza Malekzadeh Partech Ventures SF

Thinking global from day one is a prerequesite to scale. Still, entrepreneurs repeatdly ask themselves at their different stages of growth, Should I scale abroad? What impact would it have? Am I ready?

All these questions will be tackled by two experienced entrepreneurs, Damien Roch, Program Director of the NUMA Scale Hub and Reza Malekzadeh, General Partner at the Global Investment Fund, Partech Ventures, in San Francisco.

Reza Malekzadeh is a general partner at Partech Ventures, based in the SF office. In this role, Reza focuses primarily on the infrastructure, datacenter and enterprise markets. Widely regarded as a transformational pioneer, Reza has built his career and reputation by joining early stage ventures and leading them to a successful exit, but also by working in large groups to help them transition to new business models.

Reza started his career in 1998 as employee #10 at VMware, and left the team to create his company, Twingo Systems. Twingo Systems was acquired by Cisco Systems in 2004. After this successful exit, Reza joined Akimbi Systems as their VP for International Business. Akimbi was acquired by VMware in 2006, where Reza then served as Senior Director of Products and Marketing for the EMEA region (VMware’s second largest region). During his tenure, VMware EMEA sales grew from $250M to $1B. Eager to reunite with early stage companies, Reza joined Nimbula, a provider of private cloud infrastructure management software, as VP of Sales and Marketing. In this role, he contributed to the successful acquisition of Nimbula by Oracle in 2013. Before joining Partech in April 2016, Reza was head of Marketing at Cumulus Networks, a company that designs and sells Linux operating systems for networking hardware. Reza holds an MBA degree from HEC in Paris.

Damien Roch is a self-made entrepreneur. Founder of an international web development agency while on the university bench, he later co-founded Vis.io a SaaS company providing video CRM and live helpdesk solutions to companies. He then worked for 2 years as a fundraising lead and country manager France at Rocket Internet in Paris & Berlin where he oversaw Series A fundraising and international scaling for one of their venture. He's now running NUMA's office at Station F where he helps international companies set-up operations in France and Europe.
