CAN YOU RELATE?
"I need to feel more confident about pitching to potential investors. I feel like my nerves are holding me back."
"I'm overwhelmed by the options of pitch competitions and demo days and accelerators and incubators...what's worth pursuing?
"I need a roadmap outlining the right next steps to take to start fundraising."
"I'm just not clear about what investors expect to see before, during, and after my pitch."
"I'm not sure what a corporate investment committee expects at this stage."
I GET IT!
I've been in your shoes over the course of my career as an entrepreneur and startup studio founder across four continents. And now that I’ve invested in and/or mentored over 100 startups as an angel investor, I'm uniquely positioned to understand both sides.
My average exit as an entrepreneur is 48x. My average return as an investor is 14x. My current portfolio is valued at $4b. I invest directly, via FJ Labs, the Syndicate, What If, and other SPVs and funds.
I am a Techstars Mentor and WIRED Top 100 founder. This, combined with my experience leading a multibillion-dollar P&L at Viacom, demonstrates my ability to lead through growth and lead at scale. I am also a former professional soccer player in the English Premier League and I worked with the Gold Medal US Women's National Team. I love to win and I love to help talented teams achieve their goals.
