In many ways, venture capitalists are the gatekeepers to funding. As an immigrant and the oldest of three girls, I care deeply about widening those gates and equalizing access to opportunity.
I love getting to know founders early on as I believe the strongest relationships are built outside of formal fundraising processes. If you’re hesitating to reach out to us, just do it. The answer is always no when you don’t ask.
Infrastructure, security, design, dev tools, open source, intelligent apps...I’m fascinated with the transformation of the enterprise.
I'm also intrigued by companies that are applying data and analytics to fundamentally reinvent large industries, such as healthcare, insurance, real estate, logistics, and financial services.
My Dropbox experience convinced me that, as with web and mobile, every successful company will eventually adopt machine learning in some way. Technology is extending from bits to atoms, and AI is already augmenting—sometimes replacing—physical world functions.
I spend much of my free time tinkering with frontier tech. Some of my previous projects include 3D printing robot arms, editing bacterial genomes, developing AR apps, programming crypto wallets, designing autonomous car displays, and conducting computer vision and NLP research.
I studied computer science, electrical engineering, and management engineering at Stanford. I enjoy decomposing systems, whether they’re software, hardware, or organizational, and analyzing the interdependencies among their components.
I spent one of my high school summers at the World Bank working on their open data initiative and their mobile app. I witnessed how data-driven governments spurred economic innovation and how mobile devices enabled civilians’ financial independence.
Thanks to some travel hacks, I've explored more than 60 countries, many of them solo. When you’re journeying alone where no one knows you, you’re more introspective and honest with yourself. Each discovery is truly your own, and you learn to embrace getting lost in the right (or wrong) direction.
As a long distance runner, I find that summoning the resolve to get started is the hardest part; the rest is just dogged persistence.
