• Natasha joined Kauffman Fellows in October 2019 and leads Recruiting and Class Design. She is responsible for running an equitable selection process and hopes to be helpful to candidates along the way.

    Natasha founded her first company in 2006 and that is when she realized her passion for the entrepreneurial ecosystem. She moved to her native country of Brazil and helped grow Endeavor, worked for a couple of startups, ran a franchise of her own, and ended up in venture capital. Although she has many years of experience in business development, she attributes her success for her passion behind building and fostering communities.

    Natasha lives in New York City with her husband and daughter.
