From Startup Coach to Venture Capitalist

Fern Mandelbaum, Monitor Venture Partners

Mandelbaum did not consciously make the decision to shift her life's work, but was asked by two friends to help them with their new venture firm. This was in 2002, and a very difficult time to start this type of company. She got very involved in the challenges of the project and decided to commit herself to what Monitor Ventures was trying to do.
