Will Young

General Partner, VegasTechFund

Expertise

Will is a General Partner with the VegasTechFund and has been humbled working with amazing founders in the portfolio. He loves learning about almost any industry but finds that he’s least useless when it comes to commerce, fashion, company culture and awkward questions.

Will’s day job is with Zappos where he started and ran a @ZapposLabs R&D team out of San Francisco for 5 years and has recently gone back to playing a more hands on product role building new shopping experiences. He’s also the reigning donut eating champion at Zappos (personal best: 23 donuts in 20 minutes).

He would like to end his bio humble bragging about what a great amateur athlete he is. But he’s actually pretty mediocre at all sports but enjoys playing them nonetheless.
