Justin joined the investment team in 2020 and focuses on market opportunities presented by emerging platforms. He loves working with founders who augment traditional value chains and gets excited thinking about where the world will be fifteen years in the future. Justin values Activant’s thesis-driven approach because it allows him to think creatively about markets and dive deep into an industry to reason how the future is built today.

Prior to joining Activant, Justin worked on the management team at Gold Test Prep where he successfully launched their remote tutoring and college counseling program in Ghana. Justin also played Division I basketball at Harvard University and represented Thailand’s national basketball team throughout the FIBA Asia Championships.

Born and raised in Colorado, Justin is an avid Broncos and Nuggets fan and enjoys hiking, travelling, and listening to good music. He earned a degree in Economics with a secondary in Computer Science from Harvard.
