Dustin Dolginow is a venture partner with Atlas Venture and co-founder of Maiden Lane, the first investment vehicle built on top of AngelList.
Prior to joining Atlas in 2010, Dustin frequented the New York tech scene as a first time entrepreneur. Inspired by his experience working at his parents’ retail jewelry store, he started Social Swipe to give merchants more value from their transaction data. Entering the space with only an idea, a modicum of savings, and lots of passion, Dustin found a technical partner, iterated through several prototypes and became a practitioner of lean startup practices.
Prior to entering early stage tech, Dustin began his career at Lehman Brothers, where he worked in the Financial Institutions Group within the investment banking division. His three years on Wall Street provided a world of experience in global capital markets, fixed income instruments, and various liquidity structures.
Dustin received a BA with high honors from Middlebury College.
