Partner at Compound VC
Michael Dempsey invests in founders and companies at the seed stage in emerging areas, including but not limited to Autonomous Vehicles, Robotics, Drones, Space, AR/VR, Synthetic Biology, AI, and more.
Michael began my career investing multiple asset classes ranging from public equities and derivatives, cross-border private equity, and eventually seed-stage startups at Crane Partners, a multi-strategy hedge fund.
From there Michael helped scale the research and data analysis team at CB Insights, seeing the company grow from less than 15 to over 85 employees in 18 months. After CBI, he joined the investment team at Rothenberg Ventures where he led our investment team in Space, Drones, Autonomous Vehicles, and Robotics.
Today Michael invests in similar emerging areas at Compound, a NYC-based seed-stage VC firm. He graduated from New York University with a B.A. in Economics and a minor in Computer Science.
