Gabe Cunningham


Gabe is drawn to audacious founders addressing big problems in mobility. This often means working in undefined addressable markets on the frontiers of technology. He is a city nerd, passionate about climate tech, and interested in supporting companies of lasting significance.

He currently serves as a Board Observer of Verity Studios and works closely with a variety of portfolio companies including Humatics, SmartKargo, and VulcanForms. Additionally, he has played a key role in numerous other Fontinalis investments, including sourcing and conducting due diligence for the seed investment in nuTonomy (acquired by Delphi/Aptiv in November 2017).

Prior to re-joining Fontinalis in 2018, Gabe worked at Improbable in London, where he helped bring massive-scale simulation to the gaming, defense, and telecommunications markets. Gabe began his career at Fontinalis in the Detroit office while serving as a Venture for America fellow. His previous professional experiences include time in investment banking and public finance at Citi, as well as a gap semester working in the Domestic Policy Council’s Office of Social Innovation and Civic Participation at The White House during the Obama administration.

Gabe earned his Master’s degree in Business Administration from Harvard Business School. Gabe holds a Bachelor of Arts degree with honors from Harvard University, where he concentrated in Social Studies and captained the Harvard Men’s Rugby team. He often can be found walking the streets of Cambridge with his dog and wife.
