Michael Zhang is a second-time founder and experienced startup operator with a background in highly-operationalized, technology-enabled business.
Michael started his career in the startup world as an early employee of Recyclebank, a KPCB-backed cleantech startup building a gamified rewards platform for environmentally friendly actions.
In 2011, he co-founded Trumaker, a technology-enabled menswear brand focused on built-to-fit clothing. Over the course of eight years, Michael helped Trumaker hire over 4,000 sales reps as stylists, operationalizing numerous systems along the way and introducing technology leverage into a highly-manual legacy industry. Trumaker scaled from a seed-stage company to Series B and was then acquired in 2018.
In his free time, Michael is learning the art of being a new dad to his son Milo and loves to explore his hometown of New York City.
