I’m Zak.

I’m a venture capitalist at 1517 Fund, an author at McGraw-Hill, a former startup-operator, and a builder spending his time between the Heartland and NYC and SF.

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). 

Join my email list for updates on when I launch new projects, my long-form newsletter on Substack, and pick up my book on Amazon (How to Get Ahead).
