Welcome

I’m Zak.

I’m a venture capitalist at 1517 Fund, an author at McGraw-Hill, a former startup-operator, and a coal-country expat living between the coasts on airplanes.

I’ve spent my entire career thinking about finding, helping, and connecting world-class talent. I write here about how to build an outstanding career you love (plus some other topics like venture capital, startups, and ideas). 

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions. I love hearing from readers: zak@1517fund.com.
