Five years ago I moved to Boston (from NYC) to start a new career with SVB. And now starting tomorrow, I will be running our NYC startup practice. I’m excited.
Its been an incredible journey of learning, experimentation, and building. I feel incredibly lucky every day to learn about some of the most interesting and innovative companies, and to connect with the founders and their teams driving those ideas. But luck is really just one part - I’ve had supportive mentors, friends, and clients, along the way who have supported me along this journey to not only build our business and help me learn and grow, but to also build a more open and collaborative tech. community that helps new and existing founders grow their companies. Thank you for helping me grow.
I’m excited to be building our NYC startup practice, meeting the wonderful people in NYC, and leveraging our resources to help build the ecosystem. As I think about the last piece, I strongly believe the next level is about bridging (given how close we are) our founders, mentors, and all the resources that complement our two great communities.
