Zack’s belief that the systems-level thinking integral to environmental science coupled with Deep Tech can help tackle many of our urgent climate challenges led him to cofound DCVC in 2010.

DCVC is an early-stage Deep Tech venture capital firm with over $3 billion of assets under management. Zack’s investments on behalf of the firm span computational drug discovery, nuclear energy, synthetic biology, geospatial informatics platforms, and applied AI for global-scale climate impact, including areas like methane abatement and carbon transformation. Zack serves on the boards of Twelve, Oklo, Kairos Aerospace, CH4 Global, and Recursion Pharmaceuticals (Nasdaq: RXRX). Zack received a bachelor’s degree with honors in environmental science and public policy from Harvard University and a JD with honors from Georgetown University’s law school.
