Zach Noorani - Ascent Conference Zach Noorani - Ascent Conference

Zach Noorani

Zach joined Foundation Capital in May 2014. He comes to Foundation from Sherpa Ventures where his claim to fame was coining the term “On-Demand Economy” and publishing a monstrous report by that same name. In the process he had the pleasure of gaining intimate knowledge of the inner-workings of the San Francisco taxi system.

Zach started his career at Capital One Financial where he worked with the company’s senior executives to incubate new businesses, acquire companies, and develop long-term strategy.

While at Capital One, Zach somewhat accidentally discovered the startup world and has been ensconced in it as an investor and operator ever since. At North Hill Ventures, Zach helped execute investments in FSV Payment Systems (acquired by US Bank), Early Warning, Cashstar, and Live Well Financial. Then at Better Finance and InsightSquared, he helped build the companies across a variety of roles including product management, business development, and finance.
