Paige CraigAtlanta Metropolitan Area, United States
I believe COVID will radically transform how we live, how we work, and what we value. I am focused on investments in technology that will transform our lives AND I'm focused on investing in new managers who will find, fund, and manage those investments. I spent the first half of my career in the Marine Corps and US Intelligence Community and later launched a defense business, driving alone into Iraq in 2003 with just $10,000 and expanding operations across the Middle East, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Africa, and Southeast Asia. I'm an experienced early and growth-stage investor who has invested in over 100 startups in the last decade including Twitter, Lyft, Wish, Postmates, Gusto, Scale,, Clover Health, Opendoor, Bird, Classpass, Andela, and Angellist.

CEO & Cofounder
Oct 2010 - May 2012
As CEO I brought together an amazing team of people with a vision to make work more rewarding. I wanted to create a platform that would let any company bring perks, recognition and better culture to the workplace via our integrated platform. Ultimately I failed - I built a business model with very little margin and sold a solution that was only attractive to a small number of companies in the United States. I shut the company down in Summer of 2012 and returned the remaining capital to our investors. This was probably the lowest point of my professional career.
