Justin brings a diverse skill set to the venture building process, with a particular expertise in go-to-market strategy and distribution, having led sales and business development teams for adtech unicorn, Rokt.

Previously, Justin developed deep early-stage investment experience and a robust network from having founded Chaos Ventures, an investment platform, and led over 100+ transactions spanning pre-seed through Series B. His past investment portfolio covers  fintech, healthcare, and consumer, layering in major technology enablers such as AI, synthetic biology, and blockchain.
