What I'm Doing Now

Inspired by Derek Sivers, here.  Updated June 2019.


1517 Fund

I am a principal at 1517 Fund, a venture capital fund investing in startups run by brilliant young dropouts, stopouts, and those working outside of academic institutions. Email me at zak@1517fund.com if you want to chat about your startup, or if you want to work at a startup.

This is my primary focus.

Get Ahead Labs

I also run Get Ahead Labs, where I send out, via email newsletter, my favorite content on personal and professional development, as well as exclusive original content to help people get ahead in their careers. 

My Book

I just published a book with McGraw-Hill on how you can get to the next stage of your career using what you already know. Learn more here.
