Jennifer, helps entrepreneurs and investors build valuable enterprises. She cold called asset managers and launched the first internet coverage at a Pacific Northwest investment bank, managed investor relations for a publicly traded software company, and invested in early stage technology companies for the state of Massachusetts. Jennifer serves as a Managing Director at Techstars for Barclays’ New York Accelerator and Female Founders First program. Join us as we discuss how data is being used for a better world, why you should take data seriously and how ventures such as Barclays Techstars are backing causes that improve the world.
