Nate joined Menlo in 2019 and is focused on investments in Menlo’s “Inflection Fund” — which targets $20-30m checks into fast-growing Series B/C companies in the $5m+ ARR range.
Before Menlo, Nate was an Associate at Silver Lake Partners, where he worked on the firm’s investments in Cornerstone OnDemand, Ancestry.com, and Broadcom. Prior to Silver Lake, he spent two years in M&A investment banking in Greenhill’s San Francisco office.
Investing in both consumer and enterprise, Nate looks for rapid-growth companies that have a beloved product, demonstrate early product-market fit and show early signs of efficient economics, payback and retention. He looks to partner with strong founding teams, who have a unique perspective on the opportunity in front of them, to build companies that matter.
Nate graduated from Brigham Young University with a BS in Accounting. In his free time, Nate enjoys playing golf, cheering for the Pats (he’s a New England native by way of CT, not a bandwagoner), scuba diving, skiing (water and snow), and spending time with his wife and new daughter.
