About

Spencer Rascoff is an entrepreneur and company leader who co-founded Zillow, Hotwire, dot.LA, Pacaso, Supernova and Recon Food, and who served as Zillow’s CEO for a decade. Spencer is an active angel investor and is starting new companies through his Los Angeles startup studio “75 & Sunny.” Spencer is co-chair of Supernova, a family of Special Purpose Acquisition Companies (SPACs) which have raised over $1 billion in capital. He is also on the Board of Directors of Palantir. In 2019 Spencer was a Visiting Executive Professor at Harvard Business School where he co created and co-taught the “Managing Tech Ventures” course. Spencer is the host of “Office Hours,” a podcast featuring candid conversations between prominent executives on leadership, diversity and inclusion, and startups.

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic and the rise of vertical social media platforms, the father-daughter Rascoff duo was inspired to develop Recon Food, a vertical social media app that brings people together through a shared love of food. They were moved by the many aspects of social media that felt unhealthy, and food was something that brought their own family together during the pandemic.
