Fred Kauber

Analyst

Background

Fred focuses on identifying and analyzing investment opportunities across a wide array of industry verticals, although he has a particular affinity for eCommerce and SaaS businesses. He is always the first to raise his hand to help the investment team explore new themes of interest.

Prior to Stripes, Fred built his passion for entrepreneurship in middle school while fundraising for trips to go build houses in West Virginia. Since then, he has worked at startups and large enterprises spanning three continents and multiple industries. Prior to joining Stripes, Fred led business development for an algorithmic trading startup and worked in software for an alternative investments platform.

Interests

Fred loves listening – he is an avid Billy Joel and Bruce Springsteen fan and enjoys podcasts (his all-time favorite is “Dear Music Fans…” on StartUp from Gimlet Media). Outside of Stripes, Fred can be found on his quest to find the perfect slice of pizza, for which he has traveled 5,000+ miles. He is always open to suggestions.

Education

Dual Degree in Information Science and Applied Economics and Management, Cornell University
