Welcome to my thoughts

Hey there — I’m Zach Waterfield, I’m currently leading Fundraising Products at On Deck and a Network Leader at Village Global.

Previously I co-founded Kopa.co (YC W19) and worked at a few startups; WorkOS, Universe, Farmlogs, etc. Before that, I went to UWaterloo for Computer Engineering.

I’ve launched this Substack to write about ideas I have, frameworks I use and other things that I come across throughout my days. I write about my experiences as I navigate fast-growth companies, invest in early-stage startups, and work with amazing founders.

I gain a lot of inspiration for my writing from people like Shane Parish, Tim Ferris, Balaji Srinivasan and others.

I plan to release a post every month (maybe more often depending on the month).

In the meantime, tell your friends!
