Hi, I'm Nick Ducoff!

I'm a 2x founder and investor. I currently lead institutional growth at the Solana Foundation, responsible for digital assets and permissioned environments.

As an investor, I help founders scale by providing GTM support, and serve as an intellectual sparring partner when you need a nonjudgemental second opinion.

My Experience

After exiting my last startup, I joined G20 Ventures as a Venture Partner focused on blockchain and B2B SaaS investments. Prior to joining the fund, I was an angel investor in companies including: Flipside Crypto ($50M Series A), Unchained Capital ($60M Series B), Hologram ($65M Series B), and Panorama Education ($60M Series C).

I previously co-founded two VC-backed tech companies that were acquired. Infochimps, founded in 2010, delivered Big Data systems with unprecedented speed, scale and flexibility to enterprise companies, and was acquired by DXC Technology (NYSE: DXC). Edmit, founded in 2017, helped high school students and their families make smarter college financial decisions, and was acquired by Vemo Education.

As an educator, I taught entrepreneurship at John Cabot University and served as Vice President for New Ventures at Northeastern University. I co-authored a bestselling book on education finance, and report on information disclosure for The Brookings Institution. I was invited to the White House for my work in education by both the Obama and Trump administrations.

I received my undergraduate in Business Administration from Emory University and my law degree, with honors, from the University of Texas. I’m licensed to practice law in Texas and Massachusetts, and previously practiced securities law for a leading global law firm.

I live with my wife and two children in Newton, MA. I’m an Italian wine aficionado (Piedmont in particular), avid tennis player, and antiquarian book collector.
