Today's interview is with Eyal Lifshitz. Eyal is a third generation entrepreneur who has seen first hand the challenges small businesses face in building a company from the group up. His father ran his own small physical therapy clinic in New York, while his grandfather was an electrical supplies store owner in Israel.
Eyal was a Principal at Greylock IL, Greylock Partners’ dedicated fund for Israel and Europe, where he was involved in investing over $100 million in capital in start-up companies. Eyal’s father owned a small business in New York and saw first-hand the financial toll of having to wait on long payment cycles, often not taking a salary for months before payments arrived. This inspired Eyal to start BlueVine to provide a solution that enabled small business owners to grow and prosper through his company, BlueVine. As BlueVine’s founder and CEO, Eyal gives small businesses access to working capital by providing advances on outstanding invoices.
BlueVine provides flexible working capital financing to small and medium-sized businesses, giving them quick access to the funds needed to purchase inventory, cover expenses or expand operations. BlueVine is funded by Lightspeed Venture Partners, 83NORTH, Correlation Ventures, Citi Ventures, Menlo Ventures, Rakuten Fintech Fund and other private investors.
