Paul Karayan has close to 15 years of experience as a successful entrepreneur and early employee in Silicon Valley at companies like Addepar, Primer.ai & The Climate Corporation. He's built his career around "product discovery" - partnering with early adopters, and iterating together to develop product-market fit. He uses a combination of business development and forward deployed engineering techniques to make incremental progress towards a winning product. Paul has successfully applied this strategy in a wide range of verticals - including: software infrastructure, finance, agriculture, manufacturing, and digital marketing. While his current focus is on alternative investments at LIT, he maintains a lively consulting business and angel invests (including with Hustle Fund!). He also serves as a jungle gym for his two young kids.
