Eva Ho – Early Stage VC – Overcoming Adversity
Last month I interviewed Jason Nazar (co-founder of Comparably), and learned about his Co-entrepreneur in Residence for the City of Los Angeles, Eva Ho. Once I learned more about Eva, I reached out and asked her to speak with me here on TotalPicture Radio, and was thrilled when she accepted!
Eva Ho has an amazing story. She was born in China, spent part of her youth in Mozambique, and moved with her family to a housing project in Boston when she was only seven. By eleven, she was keeping the books for her family’s restaurant.
Today, she is Board Member California Community Foundation, Board Member Ocean Conservancy, Angel Investor, board member and mentor with many non-profit organizations.
Eva graduated from Harvard University, has an MBA from Cornell University, has worked as Senior Product Marketing Manager at Google, and VP Marketing & Operations at Factual.
Currently, Eva is working on launching a new $40M seed fund to be announced soon. Prior, she was a founding General Partner at Susa Ventures, an early stage technology fund investing in entrepreneurs building products, technologies and tools that create, capture, distribute and leverage proprietary and unique data.
Welcome to a Leadership Channel podcast on TotalPicture Radio. I’m your host Peter Clayton. I’m joined by my special guest, Eva Ho.
