Website

Cack Wilhelm is a principal at Scale Venture Partners, where she focuses on investments in early-stage software companies, with an eye toward those helping businesses better utilize data, automate workflows, incorporate AI, and build more resilient software. Looking further ahead, Cack is watching closely as platforms such as virtual reality and augmented reality take shape. Cack cut her teeth selling 11g databases at Oracle and Hadoop clusters at Cloudera in the months before Hadoop reached Version 1.0. Cack has since transferred that operational and go-to-market experience into helping Scale portfolio companies such as Treasure Data, Realm, and CircleCI. Cack was initially drawn to the technology and software sectors while at Montgomery & Company, where she helped advise on software acquisitions and capital raises. Cack holds an MBA from the University of Chicago Booth School of Business and a BA from Princeton University. She is also a dedicated runner, racing professionally for Nike for two years at the 5,000m distance and competing in 12 of 12 athletic seasons at Princeton (cross-country, indoor track, and outdoor track). While at Princeton, she was named the Princeton Female Athlete of the Year and was a seven-time All-America recipient.
