Eduardo Zaldivar

Principal | Texas A&M University

Eduardo is a Texas native, born and raised just outside Fort Worth. It was in his hometown that Eduardo got his first taste of technology entrepreneurship – he created and marketed, from scratch, the first comprehensive SAT/ACT Prep app on the then-nascent Google App Store (then called the Android Market), and sold it. Eduardo then attended Texas A&M University, where he graduated Magna Cum Laude from the Honors Program with a double major in Management Information Systems and Business Honors. He is a proud alumni of the Texas A&M Fellows Program, Group XXXIV.

After A&M, Eduardo joined Deloitte, working as a management consultant in their Cyber Strategy group, he worked with organizations that ranged from consumer companies to sensitive government departments. Most recently, he served as a Manager at a high-growth cybersecurity startup, Zyston Consulting, where he worked with and reported directly to client C-Suite executives at organizations as large as $5 billion in revenue and across multiple industries including healthcare, cloud computing, retail, private equity, and real estate. During his time in the consulting world, Eduardo traveled to work with clients in multiple countries, helped develop multiple service-based products, and managed both business and technical teams.

At TXV Partners, Eduardo brings his significant experience developing executive-level strategies, building high-tech companies, and working with global organizations across multiple industries. He will primarily focus on portfolio company management, investment due diligence, and building out the firm’s strategic partnerships. His operator experience in deeply technical industries will be leveraged as TXV Partners looks to invest and work in the trenches alongside the next generation of great technology, and technology-enabled, companies.

The reasonable man adapts himself to the world, the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself and his vision. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.
—George Bernard Shaw
