Welcome James and Katie
We are excited to welcome James Detweiler and Katie Li to the Zetta family!
James Detweiler is the latest member of our associate program. He joins us from SVB Capital, where he invested in AI startups like Path Robotics and Shield AI, among others. During his time at SVB Capital he also supported the Fund-of-Funds team in evaluating LP investments into venture capital firms. James loves venture because of his self-described “low fascination threshold” and we can confirm - his enthusiasm for entrepreneurship is infectious. As a physics and math major from Dartmouth, he’s a data geek who fits right in at Zetta. Check out his recent data visualization piece on VC co-investments!
Katie Li is creating the role of Zetta’s first analyst, and as you might expect from us by now, it’s got a data science spin. Katie recently graduated from Cornell with a degree in Operations Research and Information Engineering and a minor in Computer Science. She co-founded the Cornell Entrepreneurship Club and has worked in and around venture throughout college. At Zetta we’ve always believed in practicing what we preach, and that includes being data driven in our investing. Katie is taking ownership of our data platform along with more traditional investing activities like market research.
Every new member of our team brings new ideas, fresh perspectives, and a beginner’s mindset - invaluable in venture where the only constant is change. Welcome James and Katie!
