What inspired you to go into venture capital?
When I got into contact with Forerunner initially, I wasn’t angling for a role in Venture Capital. I was a Research Associate at a digital strategy firm, working with big, blue-chip retailers on their global commerce strategies. I realized quickly that I’d rather be working at one of the startups I was making case studies about. The Warby Parkers, Dollar Shave Clubs, Bonobos of the world. This was 2012-2013, when a small handful of these direct-to-consumer companies were starting to make a real splash, with growing consumer mindshare and industry validation.
