What do you do at Blackbird?

I work closely with the partners to amplify their impact on our portfolio companies. This includes supporting the partners in decision-making, helping close investments and raise future funds, and improving Blackbird's internal processes.

What did you do before Blackbird?

I started my career as an intellectual property lawyer, then joined e-commerce startup Koala in 2018 as their international markets manager and later working as their strategy manager.

What do you believe that others do not?

Everything worth pursuing is outside your comfort zone.
