mParticle’s Michael Katz says the company’s early struggles were a ‘blessing’

“Katz is a legend.”

That’s how Eniac Ventures co-founder Nihal Mehta explained his eagerness to meet with Michael Katz eight years ago, and why he didn’t hesitate to invest in Katz’s then-new startup mParticle.

After all, the man had already taken his first company Interclick public, and it was ultimately sold to Yahoo.

Fast forward to 2021 and mParticle has just announced a $150 million Series E led by Permira’s growth fund. So we asked Katz to join us for the latest episode of Eniac Extras.
