Breanden Beneschott

Cofounder & Director

An image of Breanden Beneschott

With endlessly supportive parents, Breanden grew up in the mountains of Northern Nevada surrounded by pets ranging from snakes to macaws to horses. Some of his fondest childhood memories were from building barns and shoveling manure for long hours on Sundays with his dad. It was during this time that he developed a deep appreciation for animal well-being and hard work.

Breanden went on to receive a degree in Chemical Engineering from Princeton University where he rediscovered his love for horses through the sport of polo. In the years since, he and his family have worked to make horses a significant part of their lives.

Breanden is now the cofounder and CEO of Mechanism, a San Francisco based venture firm. Previously, he was the cofounder and COO of a staffing company that bootstrapped its way to 9-figure revenues and required extensive global travel.

It was during this time that Breanden saw how deeply universal and important the animal-human bond is for people across the world. From gauchos in Argentina to family farms in Europe to olympic horse jumpers in New Zealand, animals simply make people better humans.
