I’m Nathalie Walton, an exited-founder, a board advisor, an investor, a writer, and a speaker.
Before I found my calling as an entrepreneur, I spent over a decade scaling the ranks of some of the world's most prestigious companies: Google, Airbnb, J.P. Morgan, and eBay.
In my 28 months as the Co-Founder & CEO of Expectful, I closed a $4.2M seed round in my first 90 days on the job. I pivoted the company to a more expansive opportunity and led it to a successful sale to Babylist. I achieved this by building a cult-following brand with 175K followers on IG, 125+ press mentions, and viral relationships in the influencer/celebrity community.
I thrive in advising both start-ups and later-stage organizations; I particularly excel in leading M&A, fundraising, founder-led PR, turnarounds, leaving corporate for a start-up, and work-life balance as a mom.
During my downtime, I enjoy yoga, meditation and languages. I also love traveling, which means finding a way to travel with my toddler. Last year, we visited 7 countries with a three-year old (I love sharing tips and tricks on making this work).
Ask me anything about exits, M&A, fundraising, founder-led PR, building brands, landing your first speaking opportunity, mental health, running a company with a small child, or anything else!
