Areas of focus: Infrastructure Modernized, Work Reimagined

Asad focuses on investments in line with two of the firm’s theses: infrastructure modernized and work reimagined. He has led the firm’s investments in Edge Impulse, Grain, and several unannounced companies; and works closely with investments in Tara.ai, Augtera, and ProdPerfect.

Prior to co-founding Acrew, Asad was an investor at Aspect Ventures where he co-led or worked closely with investments in Ciphertrace, Coinbase, Edgybees, Later, Ockam, Orkus (part of SailPoint), Silverfort, Tara.ai, and Writer.

Previously, Asad spent time at PwC, where he advised clients on platform strategy and growth; and helped manage a network of volunteers striving to improve Computer Science education for children in the Middle East.

Asad is on the board of Nextgen Partners, an organization dedicated to supporting and mentoring pre-partner venture capital professionals, with thousands of members representing more than 200 firms in the US. 

Asad studied Management Science & Engineering at Stanford University, where he was part of Stanford’s CS + Mental Health Organization helping turn academic research into real-world healthcare products.

 

In his free time, Asad is likely trying to make a small dent in an ever-expanding reading list, finding his new favourite restaurant, or watching his beloved Arsenal slowly forget to play football properly.
