Phoebe Harrop


What do you do at Blackbird?

Based in New Zealand, I invest in unreasonably ambitious Kiwi founders who want to build world-changing companies. I'm interested in make-stuff-better ideas across everything from fintech to healthcare, future food to cleantech.

What did you do before Blackbird?

I was an investor at Generation, working across London and San Francisco, investing in the likes of Nature's Fynd, Convoy, Remitly, Guideline and Elation Health.

What do you believe that others do not?

The "how" often matters a lot more than the "what". A beautiful solution in the abstract means little without customer obsession, product mind-set, and a thriving team.
