Zach Barasz | Director

With eight years of investing experience and a passion for technology in manufacturing and transportation, Zach Barasz is prepared to help the G2VP team invest in exceptional companies that apply emerging technology to traditional industries in novel, sustainable ways.

Zach was most recently a partner at BMW i Ventures, a $500M fund backed by BMW, where he led investments in the transportation and manufacturing sectors, including in Lime, Proterra, Xometry, Blackmore, Vera, and Bright Machines.

This is not Zach’s first time working with the G2VP team: he previously spent three years at Kleiner Perkins' Green Growth Fund. Prior to that, he was an associate at Altamont Capital Partners, a consultant at the Boston Consulting Group, and worked in strategy at the Wildlife Conservation Society, a leading international conservation organization.

Zach received a B.S. in Economics and a B.A. in Political Science from the University of Pennsylvania, and he holds an M.B.A. from Stanford University’s Graduate School of Business.
