VCIC Alum, UNC Kenan-Flagler 2015
Whitnie is working to create meaningful advising engagements between First Round companies and domain experts.
Prior to joining First Round, Whitnie recruited hundreds of people to Bloom Energy. Before Bloom, she worked at Schweichler Price Mullarkey & Barry after two grueling years in Miami with Teach For America. Her undergrad degrees are from Boston College and she currently doubles as a full-time MBA student at UNC Kenan-Flagler. Whitnie is a San Francisco native and can stereotypically be found eating avocados and rooting for the 49ers.
