Investing in the kind of world I want to live in

I’m passionate about the combined power of technology, creativity, and innovation to make human lives better and to create a positive impact for society at large. I’m an early-stage pre-seed and seed venture capital investor focused on investing in and supporting mission-driven founders that are building products aimed at solving some of the world’s toughest problems. I believe that the future of venture capital investing is one where tech is used as a tool for good, and founders are inspired to build products that address social and environmental challenges.

Before working as a VC investor, I sat on the other side of the table as a startup founder in NYC. I built Empactful, a consumer FinTech company focused on impact investing. I worked as the COO and CMO of the firm, and led and managed 30+ employees and contractors across technology, design, and marketing. Prior to working at Knightsgate Ventures, I worked at DigitalDx Ventures, an early-stage HealthTech fund based in Menlo Park.

I speak Greek and French, and am learning Italian and Spanish. I hold an MBA from Duke University and a BA from the University of St Andrews in the United Kingdom.
