We understand the unique challenges of growing both early, and growth stage technology companies.


Zeb Polston

Founding Partner

Zeb is passionate about three things – people, technology and the Red Sox. Leveraging his multidisciplinary background and penchant for people, he has successfully built global teams for venture-backed companies in the consumer internet, enterprise software, SaaS, media and hospitality sectors. After finding himself discouraged by the transactional nature of the recruiting process, he decided to start Blackprint, a company dedicated to doing things differently. To satisfy his love of technology he’s learning the MERN stack. If he wasn't pairing killer technology talent with game changing opportunities, Zeb would likely be flying bush planes in Tanzania, or sailing in the Caribbean. You know, casual stuff.
