David Tze

In 2017, achieving the goal of his search fund, David invested in and took his current role as CEO of NovoNutrients, the “food from CO2” company. For the prior dozen years, he was the sole manager of Aquacopia Ventures, which he had co-founded. Across that aquaculture micro venture capital portfolio and his prior, co-founded startup, his six companies raised $250M. The first, an online industrial marketplace called Network International, was acquired by Liquidity Services (NASDAQ: LQDT). David led the fund’s investment into Nutrinsic and spent nearly a decade with its board. Nutrinsic was a microbial protein aquafeed company not unlike NovoNutrients. Its assets were acquired by iCell. After earning an economics A.B. from Princeton, David’s career had started in internet technologies – doing strategy, general management, and entrepreneurial corporate development.
