My name is Anastacia Gordon and I’m a tech investor, writer, and (former) operator born in Jamaica, but raised in NYC. This site originally served to document my first 10-day solo backpacking trip through Thailand in effort to get more comfortable with taking risks. As my appetite for risk grew, I moved on to documenting my unconventional experiences in the professional world as the first hire at a now venture-funded and Y Combinator backed startup.
I later fell in love with venture capital after spending time on the investment teams at Kapor Capital, Cross Culture Ventures, Lerer Hippeau and Comcast Ventures while getting an MBA at Columbia Business School. Today, I write about companies taking risks to move the business of music, media, culture and consumer tech forward. I hope you enjoy reading these little pieces of my mind.
