David Olk Co-Founder & General Partner, Junction Venture Partners

No events attended yet.

After founding and running a large SaaS business day to day (ShopKeep); I sit/sat on some great boards (Kickstarter, Vengo, Columbia University's Lang); advise others (BentoBox, Preo, Tattle, Topi, Frank); and spend time at Columbia Business School as Entrepreneur in Residence. I also worked in M&A for a bit (NASDAQ: IACI) and helped private equity firms buy companies (PwC). I'm now helping people build more authentic professional relationships full time at Voray while doing everything I can to be a meaningful part of helping the NYC tech ecosystem, which I love, grow and create jobs and cool things. 

I'm excited to work with a number of impressive early to mid stage companies on a regular basis and I do a ton of mentoring and advising (NYC Techstars Mentor). 

Prior to this, I co-founded ShopKeep and ran the business day to day while raising $100m and helping to build the company into one of the larger SaaS businesses in the US. Before ShopKeep, I was Director of Mergers and Acquisitions of IAC, Barry Diller's publicly traded holding company of numerous consumer facing technology brands (Tinder, Match, etc). I joined the Board of Directors for Kickstarter after advising the team and helping raise early funding rounds which built the foundation for an amazing mission. 

Spent the first ten years of my career with PricewaterhouseCoopers'​ Mergers and Acquisitions team where I worked with with heavily capitalized private investors and large strategics who hired us to perform commercial and financial due diligence on businesses they were buying.

I have an accounting degree from Tulane University and an MBA from Columbia University. I'm a certified SCUBA dive instructor, not as great a skier as my wife, and have run a few Triathlons as a member of the Michael J Fox Foundation's Team Fox ("run" being really generous). A Certified Public Accountant, I live in Manhattan with my wife and two sons.
