Jesse's Rise

Jesse can spot an incredible investment from a mile away — because early-stage investing is practically in her DNA as a fourth-generation venture capitalist. The most notable companies within her 70+ portfolio at Halogen Ventures include ThirdLove, The Skimm, and inclusive-size fashion brand Eloquii, but her resumé doesn’t stop there; she’s also the host and creator of Emmy-nominated TV series The Valley Girl Show, where she has honest conversations with female-owned businesses on the realities of being a female entrepreneur in a male-dominated industry.

She’s never batted a single eyelash at the naysayers, and has written groundbreaking pieces like Investing in Women Isn’t a Fucking Charity, which has propelled her status as one of the leading voices of women in technology.

A mother of 3 and member of the board of directors at Trust & Will, Carbon38, and Preemadonna, Jesse spends her “extra” time supporting the Parkinson’s Institute and growing UCLA’s (her alma mater’s) female entrepreneurship community.

Professional Superpower

Recognizing a groundbreaking female-founded business from a mile, maybe two, away.

Personal Superpower

Jesse started her career as an actor — you may have seen her on Nickelodeon’s The Naked Brothers Band.

What Drives Jesse

Supporting female founders like her is at the heart of what Jesse strives for at Halogen Ventures. As a leader in the Venture Capitalist space, Jesse pushes for more female representation in the space every single day, and has every intention to flip the ratio from M-F to F-M.
