Ash Fontana

Managing Director

Ash started working with Mark in 2014 after deciding to focus on investing in AI-first companies.

Before Zetta, Ash launched syndicates at AngelList - the biggest startup investing platform in the world that now manages over $2B. There, he led the development of online investing, set up the funds management infrastructure, raised a fund to invest in syndicates, led the investment committee and curated investment opportunities across millions of companies. He also ran special projects like AngelList’s expansion into Europe and the UK. Simultaneously, Ash made investments in Canva, Mixmax and others.

Ash previously co-founded Topguest, a Founders Fund-backed company that built customer analytics technology for companies like United, Virgin, and InterContinental. Topguest sold in an 8 figure transaction 18 months after the company was founded.

He started his professional career at Macquarie Capital, where he was a top-ranked analyst in growth investing, investment banking and equity research. Academically, he graduated with First Class honors in law (J.D.) and finance on five scholarships from the University of Sydney.
