Lauren held a handful of operational roles and partnerships in clean technology before turning to Google to work in product marketing. Eventually, she went on to attend business school at Stanford—but an East Coast internship helped introduce Lauren to her future employers. As soon as she completed her degree, Lauren joined Aspect Ventures full-time.
Lauren has a keen ability to identify greatness in founding teams by analyzing startups from all angles—particularly a team’s connection to their mission. Once she’s given a company the green light, Lauren becomes a collaborator who strategically prioritizes where time and resources should go next. Then, she helps those same entrepreneurs plan for the next round of financing.
