The Village

A group of industry leaders inspired by the ideal of shared progress. Our community is built on the willingness to share and a commitment to participate.

Today’s marketplace is characterized by its contradictions. The need to transform but be risk averse. The desire to collaborate but remain private. To live on the edge of chaos in a world that seeks order.

We are defined by our commitment to our Village — a formal community of decision-makers, business executives, technologists, industry leaders and academics. We put our problems and learnings on the table. Each person comes at it from a different perspective, with unique knowledge, insights and experience. The discussions foster progress, market validation, and often lead to end customers.

Our Investors

Our strategic investors spearhead our Village — they are the brain-trust we call on at every step to provide insights, guidance, and validation. As shared owners in our companies, they are deeply invested in ensuring that the best ideas, technologies, and companies are created.

What our
Village members
say about us:

Charles Blauner

Former Global Head of Information Security

“The idea of the Village that Team8 has is exceptionally powerful. It’s really important to be able to bring a set of experts with diverse backgrounds in together to work, to think about how to solve great problems.”

Justin Berman

Head of Security

“One of the things that makes the Team8 Rethink Events so unique is to see CISOs from a large array of different fields, who may have much more traditional approaches, either by nature of the companies they work for, or by nature of their own experience, get exposed to different problems.”

Fiona Williams

Partner

“The quality of the content, the quality of the participants, the nature of the small group and being able to really focus presentations to the audience, make Team8’s events incredibly valuable.”

Warren Small

SVP for Security, Sales and Innovation

“The most exciting part about the Team8 model is the ability to collaborate and share live feedback in terms of what’s happening in the market and what our clients’s biggest challenges and aspirations are, knowing that it’s not going to be used for self-interest, but more for the greater good of society.”

Lisa Markey

VP, Global Head of Cyber Risk and Solutions

“The Team8 Village is really special. It’s a group of incredibly talented individuals who collaborate at all levels, from just keeping everyone going on a Friday, to really sharing in-depth knowledge about all of the emerging risks.”
