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. I’m especially excited about consumer apps, and some sectors I’m passionate about include HealthTech, FinTech, Media, and Web 3.0.

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.
