I am an internet veteran who did her master's thesis on Targeted Marketing on the Web in 1995. As an early founder in three San Francisco companies that went public, a sales star that oversold my quotas by millions and a witness to hundreds of companies in high growth mode, I've seen what has and hasn't worked when it comes to scaling startups. Most often, success or failure is tied to the founders and their ability to master mindset. Intrigued with behavior change, I created Shift, a game that shows people why they do what they do. After working with clients from HP and Coca-Cola to Stephen Covey, I know the best ways to change behaviors and make them stick - critical for developing the rock star entrepreneurial mindset. As the founding partner of The Vinetta Project, I fueled the rise of tech's top female founders and helped them raise over $50M. My company, Casanova Ventures developed The Art of Leverage so that founders thrive, not just survive. And as connection catalysts, we use the wealth of our network to provide unprecedented access to catapult the next emerging technologies. An all out advocate for serving rather than selling, I believe that when we cultivate great relationships we develop the best businesses. Ask me about networking, sourcing deal flow, finding the next tech, strategic partnerships and anything that includes women and startups.
