Hi, I’m Kyle Tibbitts. I’m the Head of Marketing at Fast. Before joining Fast, I was the Head of Brand Marketing and second marketing hire at Opendoor. I’ve spent the last 12+ years building marketing machines from the ground up and love jumping into the trenches with founders to help take their marketing strategies from 0 to 1. I also host a podcast called the Paradox Podcast with 30,000+ listeners.
The mission of Paradox Capital is simple. Give outsider founders –– and founders outside Silicon Valley –– early capital and direct access to the best product, marketing, design and ops experts inside Silicon Valley so they can build their companies wherever and however they want. In particular, I'm looking to invest in resourceful and resilient founders with the storytelling superpowers and vision required to recruit talented global teams to join their missions.
Every week, founders from all over reach out to me, asking for help taking their marketing strategies from 0 to 1. This fund scales my ability to bet on the best ones and build a support network around them. While Silicon Valley the place is dissolving into the cloud, the philosophy around boundless creation is stronger than ever. That’s the tension –– the paradox –– I'll be leaning into.
