Mark Friday| Managing Director
Born and raised in Houston, I went to college for electrical engineering and economics at TCU in Fort Worth, TX. I worked at Lockheed Martin for a couple of years on microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) for the F-35 program, detecting tiny cracks in composite materials based on the vibrations of flight. However, I wanted to do something more entrepreneurial and at the system level. So I joined a very small engineering consulting firm, Shrader Engineering, and launched their technology department. I sold and designed communications, security, and control systems projects to new customers who had never heard of us. When Shrader Engineering got acquired by a much larger Canadian company, my little $500k technology projects would no longer be meaningful drivers of revenue. So I stuck around for 12 months and 1 day before leaving to launch Cathexis Ventures within Cathexis Holdings.
Cathexis Holdings is a large single family office based in Houston. I launched Cathexis Ventures on June of 2018, so for the last two years I’ve been traveling around finding great founders to invest in and great investors to collaborate with. We’ve been fortunate to have some good returns in a highly diversified and low risk venture portfolio. I’m fortunate to have this role, because being around the brilliance and optimism of entrepreneurs is as good as work life gets.
