Swati’s superpower is her ability to find rising leaders, invest in them, build teams around them, get other like-minded supporters involved, and help them grow in impact.
She learned how great teams and companies are built from the inside at start-ups like Square and how capital supports and amplifies entrepreneurs in all kinds of ventures during her time at Google.org and as a partner at Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers. She put these skills to work in civic life too, as Finance Chair for Pete Buttigieg’s 2020 Presidential campaign.
Swati graduated from Harvard with an AB in Development Studies. She also holds an MPhil in Economic History from the University of Oxford, where she was a Rhodes Scholar, and now serves as a Trustee for the Rhodes Trust.
When she isn’t working to support a new generation of startup, civic and nonprofit leaders, Swati rides horses.
Matt is a builder at heart. He started at Apple, building the software team for 10 generations of the iPod. He was one of the first engineers on the original iPhone and involved in the development of 5 iPhone generations, and the first iPad.
As co-founder of Nest, Matt built the team that built the first learning thermostat and the leading connected home brand. Now, Matt splits his time between Incite and a new project he’s cooking up with some friends. This is the way.
