Jenny is a General Partner at Freestyle. After graduating from Wharton undergrad and working as a CPA in NYC, Jenny became disillusioned with corporate life. She quit her job, backpacked around the world for a year, and landed in Palo Alto. She worked at a consumer software company where she launched its Internet division (yes, it was 1997!) and lived through its IPO. This experience got her hooked on the Valley way – combining big ideas, smart people, hard work, and a little bit of luck – and great things will ensue.
She then went to Stanford business school, but dropped out after her first year to co-found her first company, WeddingChannel.com (acquired: XOXO), aggregating gift registries of all the major retailers, and after that, Bella Pictures (acquired: CPI). She later angel invested in, consulted for, and/or advised great entrepreneurs and companies such as Discord, Minted, MainStreetHub, and others before joining Freestyle.
She loves what she does at Freestyle which is meeting with incredible entrepreneurs on a daily basis and hustling alongside her portfolio companies. She also gets tremendous joy from being a founding and board member of All Raise, a non-profit dedicated to increasing diversity in tech.
During her time offline, she loves to spend time with her husband, three kids, and their puppy. She also hikes, travels, scuba dives, reads loads of non-fiction, and spends time with people who broaden her view of the world and make her laugh (preferably, a lot!)
