Big Sky Capital Takes the VC Spotlight: Meet Co-Founder Jahn Karsybaev

TLDR:

Big Sky Capital, an up-and-coming early-stage investor, was recently awarded VC of the year. The firm’s co-founder, Jahn Karsybaev, discusses their investment approach, successes, and the “helpful failures” that have led to their recognition. They have a particular focus on supporting immigrant founders who are underrepresented in the startup scene. Big Sky has invested in a range of sectors including AI, data warehousing, cybersecurity, healthcare, and medtech. They invest primarily at a very early stage and aim to close funding rounds quickly so that founders can get back to building their companies. Big Sky has been active in making investments and deploying capital despite the recent slowdown in VC activity. The firm’s success has led to plans to raise a second fund to further support their portfolio companies and compete for startups at the Seed+ and Series A stages.
