We're excited to announce Wiz, Co-Founder and General Partner at Spacecadet, as Beacon's latest mentor! A seasoned entrepreneur and leading investor in web2 and web3, we’re thrilled for our founders to learn from Wiz’s deep industry experience.

Prior to founding Spacecadet, Wiz was a 2x startup founder. He co-founded Rise People in 2011, which was one of the first People and Culture technology platforms. Later in 2016, he co-founded Hazel, which was a feedback and culture app built on top of Slack that was acquired in 2019.

With Spacecadet, Wiz is building ‘The Marketing VC,’ leveraging his and his co-founder’s backgrounds in design and marketing to help their portfolio companies craft their brands. Launched in 2020, Spacecadet boasts Marc Andreesen, Alexis Ohanian, and Chris Dixon amongst its LPs and invests generally across all emerging technologies. Spacecadet has built a name for themselves by launching with one of the most innovative decks in the industry and open-sourcing tools like Vision Quest to help founders refine their pitches and branding. 

We're honored to have Wiz share his expertise in branding, marketing and fundraising to help our founders scale their startups. Please join us in welcoming Wiz to the Beacon mentor network!
