Laura is the founder of TheVentureCity, an early-stage venture fund, investing in startups across the US, Europe and Latin America. The team of operators-turned-investors refuses to follow the conventional crowd, because they strongly believe in a product-led growth approach, prioritizing user retention over revenue. An early employee of Facebook, Laura spearheaded international growth in Silicon Valley, and throughout EMEA and LatAm. Prior to that, Laura held management roles at eBay and Siemens and co-founded a tourism startup in 2000. She’s recently been named a Henry Crown fellow by the Aspen Institute.
