Abe is the Managing Partner at ARV, which he founded after meeting and working with Kevin Ryan of AlleyCorp and Eliot Horowitz of Viam Robotics in late 2021. Abe remains an Advisor at AlleyCorp and takes inspiration from them as he builds ARV.
Abe was previously a product and eng leader at Alphabet. He worked on Android, built the Verily Life Science product teams, and built the Google Research product team.

Abe was previously a product and eng leader at Alphabet. He worked on Android, built the Verily Life Science product teams, and built the Google Research product team. Before Google he built a Web 2.0 startup and worked on UAVs in the defense industry. He has some shiny degrees (HBS MBA, WPI MS EE, URI BS Comp Eng) but learned the most when he dropped out of high school to run fishing boats and factory lines in the family aquaculture business.
Aniq is the Managing Director of GETTYLAB and its early-stage investment arm, FAST. He's been investing in companies founded on engineering-driven insights since 2014, and we at ARV seamlessly collaborate with Aniq when brainstorming what's possible as advances in applied math coalesce with those in electrical, mechanical and embedded software engineering.
Wendy graduated with an MBA from Stanford Business School and B.S. from the University of California, Berkeley. In her spare time, she serves as a guest lecturer for Harvard and Stanford Business School.
"Just as the internet has catalyzed today's world, the role of robotics and automation will shape how we fundamentally work and live together across all domains"
Prior to her work at AlleyCorp, Susannah led business strategy and operations at Artsy. She graduated from Princeton, where she was also captain of the varsity rowing team.
Aniq and Abe were classmates at HBS, where Abe learned firsthand how truly distinct and amazing Aniq is!
Joseph focuses on frontier tech companies with an emphasis on materials and robotics. A PhD student at Rice University in NanoEngineering, he has conducted research at the US Army Research Lab building novel neuromorphic chips. An Associate at AlleyCorp, Joseph is also an Advisor at ARV.
Thanks for visiting our little corner of the internet! I feel very lucky to be here working with you and others like you to make the world better. I've had so much fun building products, businesses, and companies throughout the years, and am having even more fun helping amazing founders do the same!
I am here to leave the world better than I found it. I believe deeply that the work we do in technology accomplishes this - when we are purposeful and diligent in doing hard things to solve problems that matter.
Robotics and automation is needed to solve a number of these problems. Problems like climate change. Problems like how to feed the world (in the face of climate change). Problems like making and distributing goods to a growing middle class without bankrupting our environment. Problems like handling global demographic shifts and labor shortages.
We are here to help make this happen, and to do our best to be part of the solution. We are grateful to work with you as we do so!
