Tess is a force of nature. Through her unique combination of strategic thinking, empathy and ability to execute, she has become an awesomely valuable investor and advisor to some of the best web2 and web3 projects. I don’t know many investors who work harder and with such sincere passion for the founders she supports.
Tess invests with conviction. She’ll offer to connect you with an amazing opportunity she’s just come across, find the 30 seconds between meetings to check on how your team is doing, and respond at midnight to a distress signal, all with incredible positivity and calm. It has been an absolute privilege to have Tess in our corner, and we look forward to much more!
