Jennifer Scott Fonstad
Draper Fisher Jurvetson

Jennifer Scott Fonstad is a Managing Director of Draper Fisher Jurvetson. Considered one of the most senior women in venture today, Fonstad invests broadly in early stage companies, most recently taking an early leadership role in clean energy. Additionally, she has been working to change our country?s healthcare system through entrepreneurship. Recent investment successes include Athenahealth, Lumenos (acquired by Wellpoint), and NetZero.

In addition to her investing responsibilities, Fonstad sits on the investment committees for DFJ VinaCapital, DFJ?s partner fund in Vietnam; DFJ Tamir Fishman, DFJ?s partner fund in Israel; and serves as adviser to the DFJ China team.

Fonstad finds much of her inspiration from her family. She and her husband Diego are building the first LEED Platinum certified home in their hometown of Atherton, California. Her oldest daughter has taught her the importance of grassroots efforts through her work with the Atherton GreenSTART program, her school, and through the FIRST Lego Competition.

Fonstad joined DFJ as a Kauffman Fellow in 1997, becoming a partner in 1998. She began her career with Bain and Company after spending a year teaching math to high school students in sub-Saharan Africa. She graduated cum laude from Georgetown University and holds an MBA with Distinction from the Harvard Business School. She is married with four children.
