Co-founder and CEO, B12

Nitesh Banta #44 Co-founder and CEO, B12 Both an angel investor and a founder, Nitesh Banta trades notes with his portfolio companies on the lessons he’s learned from scaling B12, the professional-services firm that he co-founded. It has raised $28 million in funding from investors, including General Catalyst and Naval Ravikant. Before his startup, Banta was on the founding team of two other ventures: the car-sharing app Getaround and Rough Draft Ventures, a General Catalyst-backed firm that invests in student founders. Banta reeled in a major exit this year when his portfolio company Rigetti Computing went public via a SPAC merger and hit a $1.5 billion valuation. Source: businessInsider
