G Radhakrishnan and Andrew Byrnes on Micron Ventures

By Rebecca Lewington - 2021-02-15

One of Micron’s venture capital directors, G Radhakrishnan, was recently honored in the GCV Rising Stars Awards, which profiles the top 50 people who have entered the venture capital industry in the last five years with “aplomb and notable success.” The selection process considered more than 20,000 professionals across more than 2,000 corporate ventures organizations, so G joins an elite group.

Micron’s corporate venture fund has a very specific mission: to meet the demands of today’s AI startups. And that means finding and investing in the world’s top AI founders, with a unique focus on those from underrepresented groups.

I asked G and her fellow director, the irrepressible Andrew Byrnes, to join me and answer some piercing, if obvious, questions. Why does Micron have a ventures fund? What makes our approach unique? And why the focus on diversity and inclusion?

Their answers are packed with insight, and most definitely entertaining!
