Stephen Straus

Founding Board Member

Stephen’s experience of watching one of his four great kids’ serious struggle with dyslexia and he and his wife Tina’s continuing search for how to best support their dyslexic son led the two of them to create “a new kind of dyslexia nonprofit.”

A serial entrepreneur and former venture capitalist in Austin, Texas, Stephen is the Managing Partner of KUNGFU.AI, an AI consultancy, as well as a partner and mentor at Capital Factory and a member of the Engineering Advisory Board at The University of Texas Cockrell School of Engineering. Stephen is also spearheading The Startup Diversity and Inclusion Pledge and is a graduate of Colgate University and Harvard Business School.
