Gen Z VCs have made headlines by starting syndicates, networking in Slack groups, and making a racket on Clubhouse. It's quickly become clear: Gen Z is already shaking up the venture capital industry.There's no set path for Gen Z, born between 1995 and 2010, to break into venture. Some landed their first jobs by getting lucky with a cold email, while others got the attention of bigwigs through their own, ambitious personal projects. For example, one Gen Z on our list landed his VC job after writing a book at age 18 that impressed a venture firm partner. Others are forgoing traditional firms entirely, opting instead to angel invest in startups by Gen Z founders that they believe in. There are, however, some commonalities between the rising stars on this list: almost everyone leverages social media in some way (see: the three TikTok superstars), many deeply understand the importance of forming their own Gen Z VC communities, and pretty much all of them want to change the world. Insider compiled this list by talking to dozens of Gen Z VCs to discover the rising stars making a name for themselves within their own spheres.
