Ashley MayerNew York, New York, United States
Currently: Taking a self-granted sabbatical to work on my own projects. Active startup investor (20+ investments across angel and scout). Previously: Began my startup career at enterprise software company Box ($BOX), where I led global communications for six years, from 50-person startup through IPO (and then some). I then decided to zoom out and get an ecosystem view at Social Capital, where I led all things marketing and communications for three years as we built and launched new capital products (including capital-as-a-service and a SPAC) and worked with founders spanning healthcare, aerospace, climate, fintech, enterprise and education. Most recently, I wanted to learn about consumer brands and thus entered the world of beauty (the opposite of enterprise software), leading communications at Glossier for nearly three years (and one pandemic). I love learning about new categories, building and developing teams, and partnering closely with visionary founders.
