Somak Chattopadhyay lives 30 minutes outside of Syracuse, NY, where he enjoys the great outdoors vibe of the area. He studied engineering at MIT, but spent the bulk of his career in investing. He has been in venture capital for nearly 18 years, spending time at Edison and Tribeca. Outside of tech, he is married and passionate about food and music. He’s actually a classically trained violinist, and enjoys cooking or consuming Tandoor cuisine.
In 2013, a group of professors and business people noticed that early stage companies in Syracuse were required to move to NYC – primarily because there was lack of capital and access to talent. A year later, Somak and his team stepped out to solve this problem in New York regions… and beyond.
This is the creation story of Armory Square Ventures.
