Hi everyone! I’m Athena Kan, CEO and co-founder of Dreambound! Our mission is to create upward mobility for America by breaking down barriers to vocational careers. Our investors include Union Square Ventures, Collaborative Fund, and Arrive (a Roc Nation company).
Prior to Dreambound, I started the non-profit Coding it Forward, which placed technical talent to modernize federal government agencies (eg Department of Health and Human Services, Department of State) and before that was an investor at 8VC and Dorm Room Fund.
I also post VC memes on @inagfatt, have been trying to perfect homemade bagels, and briefly played on the Harvard curling team.
Ask me about starting a company at age 20, building mission-driven companies, whether to start a non-profit or for-profit, the future of government, or where the labor market is headed.
