Hi, I'm Zander...
…but my full name is Alexander Pease. I’m an entrepreneur, product lead, and angel investor living in New York City. Right now, I’m figuring out my next project.
- Software Action Models Will Commodotize Today’s Platforms (2022-11)
- AI Market Theses (2022-10)
- Tools for Product Roadmapping at Scale (2022-11)
- User vs. Job Stories (2022-11)
I’m currently figuring out my next project. Part of the journey is writing (for the first time in a long time) and angel investing (for the first time).
Most recently I ran Platform at Hyperscience, a Series E company applying AI to enterprise automation. This included running 1/2 our Product Management team as well as stepping in as interim VP of Product Design.
Prior to that, I co-founded Nomad Health, a marketplace for temporary clinical staffing, and led the Product team through our Series B, by which time we had worked with a few hundred hospitals and had raised $20M in VC funding. Nomad continues to do quite well. During my time at Nomad I was also a partner at First Round Capital’s Product Co-Op, a small scout fund that made pre-seed investments in Parade, Universe, Light, and a few other cool companies.
I started my career on the Union Square Ventures investment team, leading research in blockchain and digital healthcare spaces.
I read 1/3 sci-fi, 1/3 novels, and 1/3 non-fiction. As a lifelong classical pianist, I grew up studying at Tanglewood and the Shanghai Conservatory of Music. I have (briefly) performed at Carnegie Hall. For the past few years I’ve been studying jazz improvisation. I was a (mediocre) D1 athlete, specifically a long jumper who walked on to the Princeton track team. Now I play soccer and boulder for fun. Most importantly, I’m the proud dog dad of a mini bernedoodle named Lua.
