“We may lose, and we may win, but we will never be here again.”
Amanda was born and raised in the Bay Area, and attended public school where she developed a love for math, history, and art. She graduated from college with a degree in marketing and after a quick (and unfulfilling) stint in sales, she discovered a career in venture capital while getting her MBA. Amanda has been dedicated to building and scaling fundraising and communications strategies through marketing and investor relations for VCs ever since. She loves that her passion for learning is incorporated into everyday work through exposure to founders who are transforming the world of education through technology.
Access to quality education should be a right, not a privilege. Exposure to new ideas that challenge your way of thinking contribute to a more fulfilling life and a better society. Through education, meaningful discussions lead to understanding, empathy, and innovation, which are the building blocks for meaningful change.
