Managing Director, Fidelity Investments

Shyam Kamadolli

At Fine Structure Ventures, a venture capital fund affiliated with FMR LLC, the parent company of Fidelity Investments we focus on early stage investments in disruptive scientific and technological innovation.

Prior to this fund, I led investments in deep tech (AI, Robotics, Blockchain, Crypto, HPC, etc.) over 15 years for funds at Applied Crypto Ventures, F-Prime Capital, Eight Roads, and Fidelity Ventures.

I am a follower of the globalization of innovation and enjoy engaging with leading regional funds as an advisor: Pillar VC (Boston), Kae Capital(Mumbai), and Oui Capital (Lagos). This follows a long career as a technology entrepreneur, operator, investor, and dealmaker for over 20 years.

I frequently take on operating roles in startups, and in recent years, I have led strategic business development for startups like Tactai (haptics and virtual reality) and ownCloud (cloud file storage). Previously, I led business development efforts at RSA’s Data Security Division and drove the relationship that led to the $2.3B acquisition of RSA by EMC in June 2006 (largest tech deal that year).

I earned dual MBAs from Columbia Business School and London Business School; an MSEE from Clarkson University, and a BE in Comp. Engg. from Mumbai University.
