Croom Beatty

Croom is a principal at Menlo Ventures focused on financial technology, healthcare IT, and enterprise SaaS. Since joining Menlo in 2017, he led the firm’s Series A investment in Rivet and has also invested in BitPay, Fieldwire, Fleetsmith, HOVER, Particle Health, ShipBob, Skip, and Zylo. He also led diligence on Menlo’s investments in Benchling, BlueVine, Bread Finance, and JUMP Bikes.

Previously, Croom worked in strategy at Payoneer, where he launched and ran its first credit business line, which provided 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 in history. In his free time, Croom enjoys going on very long walks (thru-hiked the 2660-mile Pacific Crest Trail), running ultramarathons, skiing, and reading fiction. He grew up in Philadelphia, the “Paris of the Mid-Atlantic,” but thinks SF is pretty magical, too, and loves living there with his wife, Sara, and dog, Ernie.
