Stuart looks primarily at Fintech, Real Estate, and Robotics deals at RRE, which he founded with Jim Robinson in 1994. Stuart is currently a director of Bark & Co., Clearpath Robotics, Floored, Jibo, One Drop, and Payfone. His previous investments include Business Insider, Kroll Bond Ratings, Proofpoint, WatchGuard, and MessageOne. Stuart is also an Adjunct Associate Professor at Columbia Business School, a board member of The Browning School, and Chairman of the Board at 92nd Street Y. Stuart served as the President of the Board at 92nd Street Y from 2012 to 2015, where he oversaw a number of technology initiatives, including the creation of Giving Tuesday.
Previously, Stuart worked at McKinsey and Company and at Dillon, Read & Co. Before founding RRE Ventures, Stuart and Jim Robinson were cofounders of InterVideo Response, an in-stadium touchscreen ordering startup, which proved to be about ten years too early. Stuart holds an MBA with Distinction from Harvard University and a BA in Economics from Wesleyan University, where he was a Gilbert Clee Scholar and a Horace White Fellow. Stuart can be found cycling in Central Park, spending time with his wife and two kids, and waxing poetic about his black cat.
