About Brandi

I'm not great in talking about myself, but here it goes. For the last year and half I have been working at a startup in a leadership capacity. I lead a business development team and work with other members of the leadership on operations effectiveness, employee engagement, building culture, and getting stuff done.

I joined this startup after working on developing our larger entrepreneur strategy for a high-level non-profit foundation. I was introduced to startups and entrepreneurs and joined the club. It was the best decision of my life.

I quickly grew to love my experience and understand why people love startups. I get it.

In previous business development roles I have raised $20 million to support programs.

I was honored to be named on of DC's top 40 women in tech in 2016.
