He will continue working alongside portfolio companies on developing open source software and their technical strategies.

Yuan Han Li to Principal

Yuan joined BCAP in 2021 as a Research Scholar. Yuan’s primary focus is orienting the team around core investment theses that he has developed and shepherded, as well as making investment decisions. With his promotion to Principal, he will now mentor some of the more junior members of the investment team and play a key role in setting the firm’s research agenda. 

Sterling Campbell to Senior Associate

Sterling joined BCAP in early 2022 as an Associate. With his promotion to Senior Associate, Sterling will continue to play a key role in consumer investments at the firm, while now supporting portfolio companies more closely and conducting diligence on new opportunities to present to the investment team.

Anay Simunovic to Senior Analyst

Anay joined BCAP in 2022 as an Analyst to conduct investment diligence, focusing largely on the intersection of consumer and crypto. With her promotion to Senior Analyst, she will continue to source investment opportunities and will now be spending time developing investment theses and supporting existing portfolio companies more closely.

Scott Hall to Senior Platform Analyst

Scott joined BCAP in 2022 as a Platform Analyst. Scott's primary focus is guiding portfolio companies in securing top-tier service partnerships and talent acquisition. With his new role, Scott will now play a pivotal part in the development of BCAP Build strategies.

As we continue to evolve and grow, we know that our team's diverse talents and steadfast dedication are the driving forces behind our success. We look forward to seeing these outstanding individuals excel in their new roles, while contributing significantly to the firm's ongoing mission to provide unwavering support to our founders and their teams.
