Senior VC Associate @ Quantum Light in New York City, NY

QuantumLight is the investment firm built as a technology company by a team of tech unicorn founders, quant traders, AI scientists and engineers

We are using technology to disrupt the world of venture and growth equity. The industry is still stuck in the 20th century, operating in a completely different way from the technology companies it tries to support. Leveraging our experience building a hyper-growing decacorn and a background in quantitative trading, we are building the investment firm of tomorrow. A firm with a product DNA and a heavily data-driven investment strategy.

We have already built and tested a first version of our proprietary data platform and decision engine, and we are currently in stealth mode, focusing on strengthening our team of elite professionals before public launch.
