HI. I'M LESLIE.
I'm the Founder & CEO of the Female Founders Alliance, a 20k-strong community of founders, executives, investors and supporters dedicated to accelerating the success of female-founded companies. I'm also a mom, immigrant, technologist and investor.
After almost two decades in the corporate world, I find myself a rising leader at the intersection of gender equity and venture capital. Describing myself as such makes me feel imposter syndrome and discomfort. It's not something that is easy to admit. But having a voice that people listen to is a privilege that I have to recognize. I hope to do some good.
This blog is an intersection of topics that surface in my day to day - some business, others personal. I hope you find something here that resonates.
Contact me for partnership, press, and speaking engagements.
I'm told I should put my whole career in here. Stay tuned. One day I'll get to it.
