Why this Seattle venture capitalist moved to a farm — and the startup lessons learned along the way | GeekWire

Must Read

Longtime Seattle tech pioneer and software engineer who is also an investor, entrepreneur, and general partner at seed-stage venture capital firm Founders’ Co-op.

Aviel Ginzburg has been dividing his time between attending to his farm and fielding calls from company founders. But following an impulsive real estate purchase, the self-described “city kid” recently chose to add farming to his résumé. Ginzburg and his wife had made jokes about buying property in Southern Oregon, but when they came across a listing that met all their criteria, they decided to take the plunge. Their 40-acre estate boasts a variety of amenities, including a flower garden, alfalfa field, vineyard, and horse stables. Ginzburg co-founded a social media analytics startup that was bought out in 2017 and created a new business called Double Dinosaur Farm, reigniting his passion for entrepreneurship.
