Hi, my name is Earl Lee

Recently, I was an MS/MBA candidate at Harvard Business School and an investor at Costanoa Ventures, a Seed & Series A venture capital firm focused on enterprise software.

I spent 6 years helping build B2B SaaS company FiscalNote, where I joined as the 3rd employee and helped us grow to 150+ employees and $10M+ ARR. I was a software engineer for 2 years and a product manager for 4 years, writing code for our MVP, owning design and implementation of core features, and leading our data analytics function. By the end, I led a cross-functional R&D team of 15+ people shipping product across web, iOS, and Android. Our product helps organizations ranging from F500 to nonprofits manage policy issues using data and machine learning.

During undergrad, I interned at Google as a software engineer and got my BS in Computer Science at Yale.


I'm an avid weightlifter and photographer. One of my favorite weekend activies is to post up at a coffee shop and read or write code. In the absence of a coffee shop, I like to make my own pourovers.
