New Stack is delighted to announce the addition of Luke Skertich as our newest Principal. Luke brings a wealth of experience and a fresh perspective to our team, and we are confident that his contributions will be invaluable as we continue to back the leading seed-stage tech companies outside of the Bay Area.

With a strong background in product and VC, Luke has developed a keen eye for identifying promising companies and helping them achieve their full potential. Prior to joining New Stack, Luke invested in over 50 companies during his time at FJ Labs and M25. His ability to navigate the complexities of Marketplaces and SaaS businesses and his commitment to fostering strong relationships with founders have earned him a reputation as a rising star in the industry.

At New Stack, we are dedicated to supporting the next generation of game-changing companies from outside of Silicon Valley. Luke's expertise in areas such as enterprise software, fintech, and consumer technology aligns perfectly with our investment focus, and his addition to our team will strengthen our ability to identify and nurture the most promising startups.

"We are thrilled to welcome Luke to New Stack," said Nick Moran, General Partner. "His fresh perspective, analytical skills, and passion for supporting entrepreneurs will be invaluable assets as we continue to invest in and support innovative founders building cutting-edge technologies."

"Getting to know Nick over the years has been a genuine pleasure,” said Luke Skertich, incoming Principal, “New Stack's investment ethos aligns with my own values and vision for the asset class. Joining forces with the team for Fund III and beyond was simply the natural next step, and I couldn't be more thrilled about the journey ahead. Returning to Chicago with my family adds an extra layer of excitement as I look forward to contributing to an incredible team!"

With Luke's addition to our team, New Stack is better positioned than ever to identify and support the next generation of disruptive companies. We are excited to embark on this new chapter and continue partnering with exceptional founders and driving top decile returns for our LPs.
