Shane NemanPrincipal at Neman Ventures
I pride myself on being a problem solver and a consummate optimist, which have been significant advantages in my life as a serial entrepreneur. My experience and expertise in business span many industries from technology and telecommunications to real estate and hospitality. After earning a computer science degree from NYU, I started three tech startups (two of them – EZ Texting and JoonBug – were acquired) with hundreds of employees and tens of thousands of customers. I’m a prolific backer of startups including Impossible Foods, Convoy, Prose, and Universal Standard, Apostrophe, MeetMindful, MapAnything, VinePair, Smylen, Hyperice, Teamflow HQ, ResiDesk, Symmetry Systems, and more. I’m also a real estate investor and developer. I own more than two dozen large-scale properties across the U.S. ranging from commercial shopping and industrial centers to residential buildings. While attending NYU and pursuing a degree in Computer Science, I received the prestigious Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship and a member of the Phi Beta Kappa academic honor society.
