Toufic Boubez, a seasoned entrepreneur and technology leader, has joined our team as a Venture Partner as of Fall 2023.

Toufic Boubez, a versatile entrepreneur and engineer, holds engineering degrees from McGill and a Ph.D. in biomedical engineering from Rutgers. Notable roles include Chief Architect at IBM, co-founder of Saffron Technology (acquired by Intel), and VP Engineering at Splunk. Co-founder of successful exits Layer 7 Technologies and Metafor Software, he later joined Macro Health and now serves as CTO at Catio, focusing on cloud architecture.

Maria Pacella, Managing Partner at Pender Ventures, has had the chance to partner with Toufic multiple times. While at GrowthWorks, she was part of the first syndicate for Layer 7, an investment that ultimately won CVCA Deal of the Year. GrowthWorks was also an investor in Metafor. Given their track record together, this latest collaboration is a natural evolution.
