I am excited to join Collaborative Fund as a principal in San Francisco.
I couldn’t be more excited to join Collaborative Fund as an associate in the New York office. I come to the wonderful world of VC by way of consulting, but I started my career at Ashoka, a social enterprise accelerator, where I first worked closely with entrepreneurs who see the world differently. With a focus on Latin America, I searched for new ways to address tough social challenges, and came away convinced of the special role of startups in improving quality of life and well-being around the world.
We recently announced our new $100M early stage fund that we closed in May, along with a series of new additions to the team in June. Now that July is upon us, we’ve started to make investments out of the new fund and thought it would be good to share how we’re evolving the businesses we want to invest in.
We are excited to welcome some new faces to the Collaborative team. Specifically, Nathan Friedman, Mimi Valdés, and Dwipal Desai are joining as venture advisors.
I am thrilled to share that I am joining the Collaborative Fund partnership alongside Craig, Lauren, Morgan, and the rest of the amazing Collaborative team.
Collaborative Fund is excited to announce that we led Dandelion’s recent seed round.
I first met Lauren Loktev in 2012.
When I hired Kanyi back in 2011, he was an optimistic, smart, fun-loving, thoughtful person. We immediately hit it off. We both cared deeply about making the world a better place, and that bond proved to be a foundation for an incredible business partnership and friendship.
We’re excited to welcome Morgan Housel to the Collaborative Fund team.
Morgan and I met over a year ago and immediately hit it off. His sensibility, pragmatic optimism, sense of humor, and diverse set of interests made him a perfect fit for our group.
We’re thrilled to announce our partnership with Sesame Workshop. Together, we are launching a new fund, Collab+Sesame, focused on childhood development. Below are some questions and answers about this initiative!
