Dino Vendetti – Managing Director

Dino founded Seven Peaks Ventures in 2013 to work with and support the region’s most promising entrepreneurs. Dino is a devout believer in growing brilliant ideas by supporting entrepreneurs seeking solutions to complex issues in this highly competitive tech industry.  Bringing his experience in Silicon Valley to bear, Dino was an early adopter of creating opportunities for booming towns and regions outside of San Francisco. Dino took his venture experience to Bend, Oregon and began Seven Peaks Ventures on the premise of building and growing the tech eco-system in Oregon.

Prior to Seven Peaks Ventures, Dino was a General Partner at Formative Ventures, Bay Partners, and Vulcan Ventures, and held executive product and engineering roles at Qualcomm, Metawave, US West Cellular, and TRW.
