Hey! I'm Athena, X Fellow at Greylock and incoming investor at 8VC.
I care a lot about making government services more effective. So far, I've:
- started Coding it Forward (backed by Chan-Zuckerberg Initiative and Knight Foundation) to bring technical talent into federal government agencies (~$500K in government contracts).
- helped to build City of Boston's open data hub
- prototyped software for the VA & US Digital Service
- spoken about technology in government (most recently: Code for America Summit main stage)
I've also been a software engineer working on self-driving cars at Uber, product manager at early-stage healthcare startup Karuna (backed by First Round, Founder Collective, SV Angel), and Managing Partner at First Round's Dorm Room Fund.
