Croom Beatty

Croom joined Menlo Ventures in 2017, and focuses on financial technology, enterprise SaaS, and crypto and blockchain applications. At Menlo, his investment experience includes BitPay, Bread Finance, JUMP Bikes, Skip, and he helped lead diligence on Menlo’s Series E investment in BlueVine.

Previously, Croom worked in strategy at Payoneer, where he launched and ran its Early Payments business, which provides working capital solutions to small businesses in emerging markets. Prior to joining Payoneer, Croom started his investing career at Susquehanna Growth Equity, where he focused on growth-stage financial technology companies and worked on investments in Credit Karma, Payoneer, PaySimple, and others.

Croom graduated from Princeton University with a BA degree in history. In his free time, Croom enjoys going on very long walks (thru-hiked the Pacific Crest Trail), running ultramarathons, traveling (66 countries and counting), and patiently waiting for the Philadelphia Eagles or Sixers to win a championship in his lifetime. As a recovering historian in the heart of Silicon Valley, he still likes reading dusty old tomes and learning obscure facts.
