Mike Devlin joined Touchdown Ventures in 2019 in their San Francisco office. Prior to Touchdown, Mike spent six years as an investment banker in New York City working on a variety of transactions. He started his career in 2011 at Citibank as a part of the industrials & transportation group, where he worked with companies such as American Airlines and JetBlue. In 2013, he joined Sixpoint Partners, shifting his focus to the lower middle market and taking on a more generalist industry view. Mike’s current focus at Touchdown includes enterprise SaaS opportunities as it relates to the future of the knowledge worker and professional services.
Aside from his investing work, Mike has committed himself to fighting in the battle against ALS by partnering with and advising Project ALS, an organization dedicated to finding treatments and a cure for the disease.
Mike graduated Cum Laude from Boston College with a BS in Finance and received his MBA from UC Berkeley’s Haas School of Business where he was President of the Berkeley InSITE Fellowship chapter.
In his spare time, Mike is (unfortunately) a lifelong DC sports fan. However, his pain recently subsided with the Washington Capitals winning with Stanley Cup. He considers himself an endurance sports enthusiast, pursuing ultrarunning, long distance swims and Ironman events. If it’s too long to be healthy, he’s interested. He was able to combine this interest with his commitment to finding a cure for ALS by successfully solo running across the USA (from SF to NYC) in three months during the summer of 2017 to raise money and awareness for Project ALS.
