NextGen Newsletter - April 2021
NextGen is a 20+ year old community supporting each new generation of venture capital talent.
Happy April everyone! This edition of the NextGen newsletter is jam packed with content, especially new job opportunities! Seems like there are a ton of firms that are hiring new investors or promoting from within. Best of luck to those who are looking to break in or make a move!
We’d love to take this opportunity to introduce our two new board members, Corinne Riley from Greylock and Alessio Fanelli from 645 Ventures! Corinne will be taking the lead on a number of social media initiatives, while Alessio will be focusing on membership. Fun fact, both grew up in Italy, so you know who to hit up for all the insider tips & tricks for the inevitable post-pandemic Eurotrip ;).
We’re wishing everyone an awesome start to spring. Catch y’all next month!
Shawn and the NextGen Board
