SAN FRANCISCO, March 19, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Tuesday Capital is proud to announce the promotions of Prashant Fonseka to Partner and David Jee to Associate. Prashant started with the firm as an intern in the Summer of 2013 and David started with the firm as an intern in the winter of 2015. From their very first days, Prashant and David have been valued members of the Tuesday family and instrumental to the success of the firm.
Amongst the first investments in which Prashant provided diligence was Cruise Automation (later acquired by GM) and he is responsible for investments in Anchor (acquired by Spotify) and Iron Ox, two of Tuesday's top performers. In his new role Prashant will continue to lead investments and provide strategic guidance to Tuesday portfolio founders. Prashant is a generalist consumer, enterprise, and frontier technology investor with particular expertise in AR/VR and has been quoted in leading publications including TechCrunch, Barron's, and Fast Company.
As an Associate, David focuses on early-stage companies - whether that's pre-seed, seed, pre-product or pre-revenue - across all industries indicative of his diverse interests. If you ask David what kind of founders he gravitates to, they're the ones with clarity of thought and are driven by empathy for those suffering the problem rather than passion for one particular solution. David firmly believes that technological advantages rarely force a likely outcome and that the best ideas are often unexpected.
As Tuesday continues to grow, leveraging the recent partnership with design leader frog and the landmark funding rounds of portfolio companies Astranis, Zumper and others, the leadership of Prashant and David will play an increasingly vital role in helping Co-Founder and Partner, Patrick Gallagher, identify the next generation of impactful companies. Both Prashant and David have proven their value to the firm and their promotions signify not only their growth as investors, but the growth and momentum of Tuesday Capital.
