About Nina

I recently left my job at a private equity megafund, where I shared responsibility on the operation, management, acquisition, and partial sale of 3 public and private portfolio companies, to pursue a disruptive start-up idea full-time. Prior to that, I spent two years in investment banking, both on the product (convertible debt) and industry side, and before that, dabbled in the tech world as an intern at Metacafe and research assistant (read: unpaid intern) at the Columbia Institute for Tele-Information. In college, I started a company in the retail goods space that garnered a lot of press but had too high a price point and therefore too few sales. I've learned a lot from that experience and am excited about this new venture, now that I have some real experience under my belt.

My core strengths lie in my business sense, optimism, and tenacity--I am dedicated to growing the product and thinking big. I also believe in the importance of a great team behind any start-up. Looking to partner with a software engineer/ programmer who is driven and passionate and can help bring this idea to fruition.
