After spending three years in venture capital, I couldn't get the idea of joining a company out of my head. I never thought I would stay in venture - I sort of fell into it. More and more, I saw myself helping build a company from the ground up. I told my partners at Kleiner and they were incredibly supportive in making introductions and helping me explore new industries and companies. In late 2016, KPCB made an investment in a company called Helix. At the time, I had figured out a few things:
I wanted to be at a company that made an impact in people's lives, more specifically in health and wellness where I believed the biggest changes could be made
I wanted to be at a company that was moving quickly and had a clear mission that I could wrap myself around
I wanted to be at a company where I could help build a strong consumer brand
I began working with Helix in my capacity at Kleiner and I fell in love - the mission was infectious, the team was experienced, and the company was early. So I've been at Helix since. More to come!
