Get to know Zal and the rest of the Refactor team ready to support you and your team.
After ten years in product management, I joined a16z in 2013 and was originally tasked to search for the next big consumer or enterprise app. However, I got pulled into digital health by dozens of exceptional founders launching new companies.
I soon volunteered to lead our efforts in that new category and supported a16z’s investments in a number of health startups. My interests quickly expanded to include computational and synthetic biology as I learned how biology could eat our entire world. In 2015, I helped get a16z’s first Bio Fund off the ground and soon thereafter left to start Refactor.
Some of today’s very best founders are building world-changing companies in bio and health: where software and technology can be used to foster a happier, healthier, and more habitable world. This is why we created Refactor.
Meet our extended team, who we are happy to call friends as well as colleagues. They offer our founders much needed advice in their areas of expertise: financial planning, communications, and coaching.
