Fred Kauber


Fred is responsible for sourcing, executing and supporting investments, with a focus on software. He is actively involved with Stripes portfolio companies, Fullstory, Cypress, Sift, and Pond5. Prior to joining Stripes in 2018, Fred worked in software for an alternative investments startup that grew to transact over $6 billion during his tenure. Before that, he worked in product management for Morningstar to drive engagement and conversions for the company’s retail investor product.

"The best thing about Stripes is our emphasis on entrepreneurs. Our portfolio is fairly concentrated, and that allows us to spend a lot of time with the teams that we partner with. I think it's as rewarding and fun for us as it is for them."


Fred loves listening – he is an avid fan of Bruce Springsteen, Billy Joel, and most podcasts (his all-time favorite is “Dear Music Fans…” on StartUp from Gimlet Media). Outside of Stripes, Fred can be found following the Premier League and searching for the perfect slice of pizza, a quest for which he has traveled 5,000+ miles. He is always open to suggestions.


Dual Degree in Information Science and Applied Economics and Management, Cornell University
