Ann's Rise

For over a decade, Ann has worked exclusively with pre-product market fit startups and has personally witnessed her founders pivot their gameplans (with her guidance) and succeed. Navigating that early-stage maze is why founders continue to trust her with their businesses.

As the co-founding partner at Floodgate, a seed-stage Venture Capitalist firm, Ann has made the Forbes Midas and New York Times Global Top 20 Venture Capitalists rankings multiple times, solidifying her role as a powerful leader in the space.

Today, she’s a co-director of the Stanford Mayfield Fellows Program and a co-founding member of AllRaise, a nonprofit dedicated to accelerating the success of female founders and funders.
