James Hardiman

General Partner

James has been investing at DCVC since 2013, shortly after the firm raised its first insti­tu­tional fund. He is interested in tech­nolo­gies that better char­ac­terize, model, or manipulate biological systems; robotics and automation; and companies applying artificial intel­li­gence to vertical problems. James has also invested in frontier tech­nolo­gies such as quantum computing and maintains an open mind to hearing about trans­for­ma­tive tech­nolo­gies that may not cleanly fit into an investment thesis.

Prior to investing, James worked on data-driven sales and marketing strategy for large life-science and healthcare companies. His profes­sional experience spans large-scale data analysis in healthcare, new materials R&D, and semi­con­ductor processing. James received a bachelor’s degree in engineering physics from the University of California, Berkeley, and an MBA from the University of Chicago Booth School of Business.
