Mason Yates

Portfolio Analyst

What do you do at Blackbird?

My mission is to analyse and share the knowledge in Blackbird’s portfolio with our founders and partners.

What did you do before Blackbird?

I fell in love with startups after failing to build my own while studying Finance and IT. Hungry to learn more, I've since worked at two more in Stockspot and Zip Co. as a product and data analyst.

What do you believe that others do not?

Energy management is more important than time management.
