In January 2012 Jane Chinen joined Kauffman Fellows as Recruiting Manager, taking on one of the most integral parts of the Program: our selection process. Jane assists with all aspects of recruiting, from conception of the application process, to the detailed interviewing schedules, to the transition of finalists to Fellows.
While completing her BS in Nursing from the University of San Francisco, Jane found that she enjoyed the culture, pace, and energy of the venture industry while supporting General Partners and working on varied projects as an Executive Assistant at Ignite Group and Onset Ventures, both in the Silicon Valley. Immediately prior to joining Kauffman Fellows, Jane worked as an Executive Assistant at Oak Hill Investment Management in Menlo Park.
During her free time, Jane enjoys being at home with her husband, Anthony and her children, Luke and Leah, cooking and staying up late to catch up on all the shows on her DVR.
