Taylor Clauson

Abstraction Capital

Taylor started Abstraction Capital after a few years of teaching himself how to code. To be clear, no one is going to hire him as a developer, but he realized over the years that the plumbing behind software is both exciting and full of opportunity.

Prior to Abstraction, he spent 7 years at a Kansas City based firm called OpenAir Equity Partners, investing in and building IoT and data companies. Taylor's career includes time spent in economic development and a stint at a cleantech startup.

Education, Personal, and Fellowship

Taylor holds a bachelor's degree in accounting from Kansas State University. He resides in Overland Park, Kansas with his wife and two children, and enjoys sports, fishing, and tinkering with new technologies.

As a member of Class 23, Taylor is serving his fellowship at OpenAir Equity Partners under the mentorship Scott Ford (Class 11).
