DJ Monteilh

Founder, General Partner

DJ handles the backend, not to be confused with the rear-end, operations of LivWell Ventures. He geeks out on due diligence, legal, cap tables, and data. DJ started investing alongside Doss and Bryan in 2013 when they formed Seed Sumo, a startup accelerator. Over five years, the team has invested in 36 early-stage ventures, with unrealized returns in the triple digits. He credits this experience with helping him amass a wealth of knowledge in a wide array of industries you don’t get unless you’ve cut your teeth (and checks) in early-stage investing. In his past life, DJ was in project management for the largest construction and engineering firm in the world and has also owned and operated a CrossFit gym. DJ’s boss is Laura Monteilh, and they just had their first child Mina. He likes to get out and be active, whether it’s scuba diving, mountain biking, golfing, duck hunting, or fishing.
