As an investor at Menlo Ventures, Weber focuses on investing in soon-to-be breakout companies at the inflection stage, the underserved gap between early-stage venture and hyper-growth. In this capacity, Weber supports all aspects of the firm’s investments, from due diligence to modeling and execution, sourcing new investments, and partnering closely with portfolio companies as they grow.

Weber’s previous role as an investment banking analyst at Evercore Technology Group prepared him well for this job. His primary role was building out the firm’s budding automotive technology practice in addition to serving as the main analyst across automotive tech coverage. At Evercore, Weber also supported multi-billion-dollar transactions for Qualcomm and GlobalFoundries, and business development strategies for Tesla.

A graduate of USC’s Marshall School of Business, Weber majored in finance and entrepreneurship. In addition to his studies, Weber served as Student Body President of the Marshall School of Business. He stood out among his class and was recognized as a Trustee Scholar, a full-tuition scholarship awarded to the top 0.2% of applicants.

His interest in business came toward the end of his student life. Growing up, Weber gravitated toward humanities and was enamored with evolutionary science, foreign policy, history, and poetry. In college, Weber shifted his focus from learning about the past to exploring how technology can shape the future, sparking his interest in finance and business.

Weber is driven in part by an acute interest in discovering how the world works from a human perspective. Business school enabled him to work with various clubs sourcing partnerships, allocating funding, and strategizing ways to maximize impact. Notably, he presided over Marshall Council, a monthly round-table discussion with 62 Presidents of Marshall organizations. Through this work, he discovered parallels in venture capital and working with founders.

Weber is self-proclaimed intellectually curious. He spends his free time reading and writing poetry, backpacking, visiting museums, exploring everything sci-fi, traveling, and much more. One thing he hasn’t mastered quite yet? Cooking. That’s still on his plate.
