Auld Ventures

Hello, I'm A.J. and I’m all about startups and business. I started my first business when I was in high school, and I’ve been starting and operating businesses ever since. I build and invest in companies that have sustainable advantages due to timing and technology. 

I'm a curious person and I enjoy learning about new things, which explains the path I have taken thus far in my business career. I believe that the best products and services come from a cross-pollination of ideas and experiences.


I've founded/co-founded four businesses and have invested in or collaborated with a bunch of others. You can check those out here

If I'm working out or driving, I'm probably listening to an audio book or podcast on leadership, psychology, business, crypto or investing. Check out the list of my favorites here

From 2003 to 2016, I spent most of my free time coaching lacrosse and helping young men navigate college recruiting. Over the course of my coaching career, I was fortunate to have been a part of multiple championship teams and played a role in the recruitment of hundreds of players.

My current non-business focus is to help drive innovation, funding and collaboration in the world of autism. 

I spend my free time with my amazing wife and four incredible kids. I enjoy skiing, street hockey, lacrosse, going overboard with Halloween and Christmas decorations, and playing craps and blackjack
