People ask us all the time how we got our name at Bullpen Capital. We’re not just baseball fans, there’s more to it than that.
We asked two of Bullpen Capital’s good friends Dan Scheinman (co-owner of the SF Giants) and Chad Durbin (relief pitcher for the Atlanta Braves) to help us make a short video explaining our name. We wanted to stand out from most venture capital firms, which seem to pick bland names based on things like the street where they formed or some mountain range. Our name speaks to the way we support our portfolio companies, and we think this video tells the story well.
Now that the SF Giants are once again the World Series Champions, this is the perfect time to unveil the video, since it was filmed at AT&T Park in San Francisco. Please enjoy a quick laugh and share with your friends!
