Hi! I'm Joana Gutierrez.
I was born in Manhattan, spent my childhood in Queens, my teenage years in Long Island, and I am now starting a family in Brooklyn.
I am, without a doubt - a New Yorker.
I learned about resourcefulness, generosity, and an incredible work ethic from my naturalized Filipino parents.
I like to observe and execute on patterns, trends, and theses so I became an investor at a hedge fund, and more recently, early stage venture capital. I realized that I wanted to get my hands dirty in crafting solutions, so I'm productizing technologies for companies, as well as working on my own.
My Why Contextualized: I want to leave the world better than when I found it with what I contribute to it. I also want to reduce the correlation of assholelishness and wealth accumulation by participating and investing in ethical game changing businesses and founders.
I am a life long student, forever grateful, and I've been enjoying the journey so far...
