On this episode of Investor Connect, Hall welcomes Adam Spector, Co-founder, and COO of AbstractOps.
Located in San Francisco, CA, AbstractOps automates all the key aspects of running a startup. This includes covering the Human Resources (HR) function, documents & contracts, financial (such as payments, taxes, and accounting), and compliance/regulatory. AbstractOps combines everything into a single platform tied to the best 3rd party software platforms in the world (such as Gusto, Carta, Quickbooks, and more), which means that with a single click of a button, a user can now automate processes end-to-end that would otherwise take dozens of steps.
Adam Spector is a 3x founder, angel investor in a dozen unicorns, and a GP in a VC fund.
Prior to his current company, he worked in product at Twitter with a focus on APIs. His prior startup, LiftIgniter, was a machine learning personalization company acquired by Maven. He also led sales & GTM activity at Datalogue, an ETL machine learning business acquired by Nike.
He has focused his investing activities on game-changing startups with driven, dedicated founders. Some of his best investments to date include: BetterUp (executive coaching), Human Interest (401ks), Diamond Foundry (synthetic diamonds), Checkr (background checks), Zoox (self-driving cars), Relativity Space (3d printed rockets), PayJoy (loans), Ginkgo Bioworks, Jet.com, Blockfi, August Smart Lock, Certn, Boom Supersonic, On Deck, Equi, Placer.ai, Inversion Space, Attentive and many others.
