Zach Rose

While our screens are more powerful than ever, it’s through connection and collaboration that we’ll solve the world’s biggest problems. Talent is the lifeblood of start-ups, and it’s my role to help Airtree portfolio companies access the best operators, executives, and advisors in ANZ.

Why tech and startups excite me

‍I have a healthy appetite for risk and tend to see the best in both people and opportunities—traits which led me to build a hostel in Indonesia and seek out a career in VC. I’m inspired by the founder journey and hold tremendous respect for those taking risks to make the world a better and more productive place.

What I nerd out over

Books and podcasts. I read and listen widely, particularly for business and literature (think All-In with Chamath, Jason, Sacks & Friedberg, and George Orwell). But my favourite way to learn is through meeting new people and hearing their stories.

Here’s where you’ll find me on the weekend

Keeping active brings great balance to my life. You can find me on a basketball court trying to relive the glory days of years past or spending the morning running, surfing, or swimming (poorly). This nicely balances my adoration for food. As a born and bred Melbournian, I’ve been spoiled with fantastic cuisines from all over the globe. And on that note, I’m actively seeking recommendations for Sydney.
