Member Spotlight: Ahmad Takatkah, KingsCrowd Capital
Hi. I am Ahmad Takatkah, General Partner at KingsCrowd Capital. I joined them as Senior Vice President of Investment Research, first to build quantitative ratings to evaluate investment opportunities in the online private market, then to manage venture funds.
My background in venture capital and data science is perfect for this work. I earned my MBA, was a Kaufman fellow, and spent eight years working in venture capital. I have enjoyed employment with N2V, Leap Ventures, and ArzanVC. I spent three years at Carta as a data scientist. They are a leader in cap table management and private equity technology.
In my free time, I run my own VC and data science blog — VCpreneur.com, reaching thousands of readers. Hopefully, the education goes down easily when mixed with my own brand of entertainment!
I came to Satellite and found it offered the flexibility I needed. I can come in and grab a desk without booking weeks in advance. Previous coworking spaces didn’t have that. This flexibility allows me to be more spontaneous. Also, Ann R. Mejia makes the place feel like home. She is genuinely happy to help all of the time and spares no effort to make sure everyone has what they need.
I am new at Satellite, but look forward to meeting people and making new friends. This is what I miss the most about working at a big company’s office — building relationships, having lunch together, kitchen and water cooler conversations. Most kept to themselves at other coworking places. I look forward to making new friends here!
Soon, I will bring my dog to work. Taffy is the cutest dog you will ever meet! She is a full-grown Chihuahua + Yorkshire Terrier and just 5 pounds…smaller than a cat! Come ask me to show you her pictures!
