Geoff Lewis is a Partner at Founders Fund. He is focused on backing the founders of transformative companies across a wide range of emerging sectors. Geoff was an early lead investor in the now-mainstream on-demand services, food tech, and mobile commerce sectors. He is also known for leading the first venture capital investment in the legal cannabis space.

Prior to joining Founders Fund in 2012, Geoff was a founder himself. As Co-Founder & Chief Executive Officer of Topguest, he created a loyalty software platform that counted United Airlines, Hilton Worldwide, and Standard Hotels as clients. Topguest was then acquired in an eight figure transaction less than two years after Geoff founded the company. Earlier in his career, Geoff served as a Vice President at a global macro hedge fund, a management consultant, and a Brand Manager at Procter & Gamble.

Geoff is a regular expert commentator on entrepreneurship and technology for Bloomberg, CNBC, and Fox Business. He is also a frequent speaker at events such as SXSW and Disrupt.

Born and raised in Canada, Geoff received his Bachelor of Commerce degree with First Class Honors from Queen’s University at Kingston.
